Why Catholic Education?



Corpus Christi Catholic School believes that parents are their child’s primary educators.  As such, parents have many options in selecting the right school for their child.  Many schools offer classes in English, social studies, math, and science.  Corpus Christi Catholic School not only provides superior curriculum in these areas, but they do so by integrating faith into every subject.  That is the Catholic school difference.

Our goal through our Catholic school is to provide your child with on-going formation in their faith, to develop each student’s God-given gifts, and to prepare them for success in higher education and the global marketplace.  We do this through a challenging curriculum, the support of parents, and in a nurturing environment.

Corpus Christi Catholic School welcomes students of all backgrounds, and faiths to experience the comprehensive education of mind, heart, and spirit.




CCCS MAPS Results


Corpus Christi’s active use of MAPS testing to adjust curriculum and classroom planning, for individual students and classrooms as a whole, shows in consistent testing averages that are well above the norm.



“Where Christ Illuminates Learning and Life”


Catholic schools in the Diocese of Grand Rapids are an alliance of 30 vibrant learning communities within a seven-county area of West Michigan. Our schools inspire young people to grow in Catholic faith and grace, achieve more in school and life, develop creativity and character, and feel welcomed and cherished for their unique gifts. We partner with parents to awaken the whole child to a world of light and life—that grows better and brighter when children reach their potential.  Learn more…









Awaiting the Coming of the Lord



Advent at Corpus Christi is a time of joyful anticipation. Outside of the chapel students are greeted by a Nativity and Christmas trees. Inside the chapel we have an Advent wreath and a shrine to Our Lady of Guadalupe. Throughout the building, we embrace the journey through Advent in preparing our hearts for Christmas. Each day we light the Advent wreath and focus on a Virtue in Christ. In December we are learning about Generosity and Patience – fitting for this time of year. Throughout Advent we are collecting gently used warm clothing to share with those in need. Our younger students in K-4 spent a morning participating in an Advent retreat and our middle school students participated in an all-day retreat focused on their personal and spiritual journey.
Special thanks to Father Kyle and Mr. Jim Supple for their great activities and gift of time here. On December 4, several of our students participated in a bilingual Novena at St. Francis de Sales. Advent by Candlelight offered a quiet evening of fellowship and reflection for the busy women of our parish and school, and we are grateful for the wise words shared by Carmelita LaPorte during the event. Father Kyle Kilpatrick celebrated the Feast of the Immaculate Conception with our students, and on the evening of December 14th we hosted several hundred guests for our Christmas concert at St. Francis de Sales. We count all of you among our many blessings. The greatest gift you have given our students is the blessing of a Catholic education where faith is infused in all aspects of our day.

 

With grateful hearts, we wish you a Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year.
