Cardinal Pacelli School, the Catholic elementary school of Our Lord Christ the King Church in Mt. Lookout, Cincinnati, offers a balanced approach to education based on the intellectual, social, and spiritual needs of each child. Students learn within a thriving parish community where small classes, Blue Ribbon academics, Christian values, and a nurturing atmosphere provide a solid foundation for future success. The quality of Pacelli’s educational programs are the result of a commitment to excellence. We are pleased to offer Spanish in Grades 4-8, Integrated Technology throughout Grades K-8, a fully-equipped Science Lab, and a variety of opportunities for service projects within the school and working together with Our Lord Christ the King Parish.
