The School serves as an integral link to the West Virginia Wesleyan campus, accountable to students and their families, the Central West Virginia and surrounding areas, faculty, alumni and other benefactors, and maintains a strong link with clinical educators, preceptors and the community to assure continued success.

We promise an educational experience that will include classes taught by committed and dedicated faculty who bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to the classroom.
