At Wheeling Country Day School (WCDS) we believe children have an insatiable desire to explore and learn about the world around them. Our teachers share a vision of engaged learning that sparks a student to think independently, communicate effectively, and ignite creativity. When children learn in a nurturing community, they build the confidence to learn from failures, embrace challenges and reach farther. We embrace individual learning and teach students it’s possible to learn differently. Operating for 90+ years as a 501c3 independent school located in Wheeling, West Virginia, we identify as a private school with a public purpose. Weuse our independence to pilot programs that can have broader utility for all students.
Our leading programming, Edge, is bringing fearless learning to students everywhere, transforming a ‘can’t do’ mindset into one filled with belief and confidence in themselves. We believe in the potential of every student to overcome their learning challenges. We empower learners with reading and math skills to interact differently with the world around them. Our tutors help students feel good about learning through meaningful connections and innovative, individualized instruction. At Edge, we engage with students and help them thrive in and out of the classroom. That’s the power of learning fearlessly.
