From the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston: As many of you are aware, the Diocese of Steubenville, Ohio, recently released a list of priests who have been credibly accused of sexual abuse of minors. Included in the list were the names of priests who have been stationed near, or who have celebrated liturgies and other events at parishes within the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, including our Catholic Schools. The Diocese encourages anyone who may be the victim of abuse by one of these priests, or any priest in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, to contact your local authorities or the Diocesan Office of Safe Environment at (304) 233-0880.

History & Heritage

St. Mary’s Catholic School was opened in its present location on September 14, 1914, for grades 1 through 12. Today, St. Mary’s offers a quality education to children in preschool, pre-kindergarten through 6th grade, while adjacent Notre Dame High School continues with grades 7 through 12.

The school is operated under the auspices of Father Casey Mahone and the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.

High academic standards, a Catholic Christian atmosphere, and a community of devoted faculty, staff, parents, and students form the basis of the program at St. Mary’s Grade School. St. Mary’s follows the policies of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston. Any change in the Diocesan policy takes precedence over school policies. The school also reserves the right to intrepret rules and policies as individual situations and needs arise.
