Why Wheeling Country Day School?

DEAR FRIENDS,

You and I both know this school is a special place - a first step in a full life.

Yet you never know how much you need Wheeling Country Day School until the moment you need this school.

When another school tells you your son cannot learn like others and has no future, WCDS unlocks his potential.

When you hear the diagnosis that changes the imagined trajectory of your daughter’s life, WCDS rallies full support.

When life untangles at home, WCDS remains the necessary constant for your family.

So much more than a school, Wheeling Country Day is a safe place to try a new skill that could become a life’s passion, to connect with an adult who will forever believe in you unconditionally, to balance the vulnerability to lead with the empowerment of being part of a team and part of something greater than yourself.

I am grateful to be but a small part of that which is the essence of WCDS.

– Elizabeth Hofreuter, Head of School
