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.
