Corpus Christi School, located in Lansdale, Pennsylvania is a elementary school of the Archdiocese of Philadelphia that provides instruction for students in pre-K through 8th grade. Corpus Christi School embraces its mission to be the body of Christ. We are dedicated to fostering academic as well as spiritual excellence, as we acknowledge the individuality of each student and strive to prepare them to develop their own unique gifts and talents through worship, study, and service.

The academic program is designed to meet the varied needs of the students and enable them to achieve maximum success. The school provides many opportunities to challenge students through honors programs in math and ELA as well as a rigorous STEM program. We are also able to assist students who might need extra support to reach their potential. Whether it be individualized instruction from the teachers in our resource room or differentiation in the classroom setting, we make it a priority to help our learners achieve.

Corpus Christi School instills in our students the importance of being part of a community that serves. Each morning our students are encouraged to "Be the Good." We do this through class sponsored outreach projects, monthly food drives, our Caring Cougars Outreach Club, and a pen pal program to local friends in need.

Corpus Christi School is accredited by the Middle States Association. We also have been named an Archdiocesan School of Distinguished Instruction for the last three years. We were a previous recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Award in 2011, and we are so proud to once again be honored as a part of this distinct group of schools.
