WV Catholic Schools Celebrate Catholic Schools Week – January 29 to February 4

Catholic Schools in West Virginia are finalizing plans to celebrate National Catholic Schools Week from Jan. 29-Feb. 4

Principals, staff, and volunteers in the 24 Catholic schools – 18 grade schools and six high schools – are working together to showcase our exceptional schools, said Mary Ann Deschaine, Ed.S., Superintendent of WV Catholic Schools.

“Our schools provide an environment that is an extension of our family,” she said. “We are committed to providing a quality education that is unapologetically Catholic in nature. Lessons in Catholic faith are integrated into all subject areas and activities. With a steadfast focus on our faith, we trust God, through his son Jesus Christ, will continue to guide us to help our children reach their full potential.”

While academic excellence is a priority proven with proficiency assessments remaining above national and state averages (according to the US Department of Education National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) and the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP), nurturing the whole child for college and career readiness in a Christ-centered environment is the mission of the Catholic Schools of West Virginia.

“Our priority is our students, our privilege is supporting our families, and our commitment is to continually improve our schools as we look to the future,” Deschaine said. “Through individual and critical thinking; strong self-esteem; empathy; citizenship; and a sound moral foundation all in a Christ-centered environment, each of our 24 schools prepare our students to be the best version of themselves, so they can confidently share their God-given gifts and talents.”

All 24 schools across the state will host a variety of activities for their students and the community.

Catholic Schools Week is a great time to schedule a tour or shadow day at the school if you are considering enrolling your child, grandchild, or loved one. Contact your local school to schedule, and ask them about their celebrations you can attend, such as athletic events, academic fairs, choral concerts, community service projects, school Mass, and more.

For more information contact your local Catholic school. For a complete listing go to: https://wvcatholicschools.org.

A Snapshot of Our Schools

On Word of God Sunday give yourself the gift of time to read the Bible.
The devil do whatever he can to turn us away from Christ and keep us so busy we don't make time for the Word of God.
“When we pray, we speak to God; and when we read Scripture, God speaks to us.”-St. Jerome
