St. Mary's Central Grade School
The Harrison County Catholic School System (St. Mary's) is based on the educational philosophy in which faith, culture, and life are brought into harmony.
In conjunction with the parents and the community, we educate, spread God's Word, and contribute to the formation of a morally sound and healthy lifestyle among our students.
West Virginia State Curriculum is taught along with the curriculum objectives of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston.
Students participate in the Stanford 9 Achievement Test. St. Mary's School welcomes families who accept the values promoted by Jesus Christ--faith, hope, love, peace, and justice.
The faculty strives to nurture students in reaching their full potential.
Together with the family, we share the responsibility of preparing each child for the future, a future with strong Christian values.
