About Saint Cornelius School

School 5-7











Nestled among 70 acres of rolling hills, St. Cornelius School serves Delaware, and Chester County students in grades Pre-school through 8th grade, as well as, many students from Delaware.  From our humble beginnings in September 1996 with our first Pre-school class, St. Cornelius has blossomed into a challenging, enriching and faith filled environment in which each student’s success is our focus.

We follow the guidelines of the Philadelphia Archdiocese which at present is  preparing students to meet the Common Core State Standards enacted in the State of Pennsylvania.  Our school is comprised of 20 spacious classrooms, equipped with computers with Internet connection.  State of the art computer and science labs allow students to keep current with technology. All students in grades 4-8 have  their own netbooks which are used everyday in the integration of curriculum with technology.  iPads are also being used extensively in the PK and Kindergarten classrooms. We have instituted a Writing Enrichment Program in Grades 1-3, as well as, a remedial/enrichment program in Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-6. 

Our art room boasts a kiln and students are encouraged to experiment with all types of medium. Our World Language program is aimed at developing fluency and conversational ability to all students using the Spanish language. Our library is growing by leaps and bounds as we are constantly adding new texts to our shelves while converting it to a fully automated system.  The gym, which is housed in our Parish Life Center, allows students to excel in and out of school with many athletic programs including flag football, baseball and basketball.  Music and band round out our specials with Christmas and Spring Concerts showcasing our talented student body.  Our students continue to shine in extracurricular programs such as Student Council, Choir, Drama Club, Lego Club, and Newspaper. We hope to expand these programs to include drama, art and dance.

We are committed to providing a dynamic learning community engaged in mentoring, encouraging and supporting our students’ spiritual, intellectual and emotional wellbeing. 

We invite you to come and grow with us and  to build faith-filled futures, through academic excellence, advanced technology and inspired spirits.
