School Notes

  • St. Joseph Central Catholic High School (SJHS) is a private secondary school, grades 9 12, offering an advanced college preparatory curriculum.  Located in the heart of downtown Huntington, West Virginia, SJHS is one of five high schools in the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston and is supported by the local Catholic parishes, family tuition, and third-source income.  SJHS is dedicated to serving a diverse student population and, as such, provides an environment that nurtures the whole person by integrating faith and life.  Consistent with our Catholic tradition, SJHS seeks to develop leaders who are rooted in Gospel values and committed to meeting the challenges of building a just society.  Approximately 57% of the students are Catholic.  Students attend from the Tri-State area (West Virginia, Ohio, and Kentucky) and from around the world.
  • As a central Catholic high school, SJHS differs from the traditional parochial school model in that the school is not affiliated with one parish.  Instead, it serves students from all parishes within our Tri-State area.  We have two feeder middle schools in our Diocese Our Lady of Fatima Parish School and St. Joseph Catholic School.
