Erin Augenstein, Parent and Alum
Parkersburg Catholic, Parkersburg
“We didn't just choose PC schools for our children because we're alumni. Faith-based education is important to us, and there are several options for elementary faith-based education in our community. The PCES mission to think of others before self, and to serve others are very important in our family. We're active in our community in many ways, and we wanted a school environment that supported us. We also continue to choose PC Schools each year because we know that our financial investment will pay off with scholarship opportunities for our daughters as they approach college. The data around how many PC graduates pay 50% or less of their college tuition is overwhelming. Additionally, our daughters are active in the arts, and our family needs an educational environment that can support them when they miss school for gigs, large shows out of town, and auditions. The staff and faculty has been instrumental in helping to accommodate and plan for absences for these performance and audition opportunities that will likely be careers for them.”

“We feel strongly about keeping our children in Catholic School because we love that they start their day with prayer and that there is a continued focus on God throughout the day. Life can be hectic and stressful, and we feel that this keeps them centered and strong. The combination of God and family along with excellent academics will help them to be successful throughout their lives.”

Julie Klug Fecat, Parent
Our Lady Of Peace School
Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it. (Proverbs 22:6) As a parent of three daughters attending Our Lady of Peace school, I am truly grateful for the values instilled in my children every day. In conjunction with a stellar education surpassing all of my expectations, a foundation based on love of God and neighbor is being engrained in my children’s everyday life. We are blessed to be apart, of this faith community and confident that this experience will lead these kids to a successful academic future and most importantly a life lived in service to God and others. The Our Lady of Peace family is truly ‘The People of Peace.’
Asha Leggett, Parent
St. Joseph School, Huntington
“Our world changed the moment we requested to tour St Joseph Catholic School. Our son transitioned into their Kindergarten class after the school year started and we were relieved and grateful that the atmosphere was so positive. The strong sense of community was immediately felt from day one. We knew that our values were reflected in the school and that faith-based education was the future for our family. The teachers provide personal and invaluable lessons that will shape the future and forever be cherished in our household.”
Amy Lanham, Parent
Notre Dame High School, Clarksburg
“We make the sacrifice to send our children to Notre Dame because it is important to us. Notre Dame is helping them to live their daily lives as Christians. Notre Dame is their home. At Notre Dame, they know they are loved. Not only are we able to instill good morals in them and show them how to lead and live a good life, but so do their principal and teachers.”

Sarah Lockhart, Parent
SS Peter and Paul School, Oak Hill (non-catholic family)
“With its small class sizes and attentive, caring staff, our children are learning so well. The children are learning what it is to be good people and do good in the world - values I hope remain with them throughout their lives.”
Don Robinson, Parent
Notre Dame High School, Clarksburg
“In preparation of high school our son approached us and said there are two items that are important for his high school experience. First, he wanted to continue his Catholic education in an environment that valued the interaction with the Church. Secondly, he wanted to be able to build lasting relationships with his teachers and peers by being a valued student not a number. He found both at Notre Dame.”
Megan Phillips, Parent and Alum
St. Michael Parish School, Wheeling
“I feel we are part of a lifelong family that extends far beyond graduation... I keep my 3 kids at st mikes for the discipline, structure &curriculum. They learn how to pray, talk to God & learn not only to be intellectual thinkers but good, morally-strong human beings.”
Angela Carter, Parent

We feel that our son is not only getting a great education in academics but also, he is leaning more about God's great gift to us and how important keeping Him in your life is.

Jocelyn Czapp, Parent and Alum
Corpus Christi School
“Corpus Christi School is a place where you are family. My husband and I knew that we wanted our three children to have a Catholic education. We actually moved closer to CCS so we could send them there. It is a tradition in our family to go to CCS. Our kids are the fourth Crusader generation to attend this school. We are so grateful and blessed to call Corpus Christi School our home where our children get the best Catholic education to set them up for the future,”
Gianna Martino, Student

Caroline Swank, Parent
SS Peter and Paul School, Oak Hill
“Fantastic teachers, small class sizes with lots of individual attention, and the strong moral base that comes with a Christian education are all reasons we chose Saints Peter and Paul for our three children. It feels like family there and has been a great start for academic advancement and raising kind, responsible children.”
Pam Lizon, Grandparent
Madonna High School, Weirton
“I am so thankful for the diverse opportunities that you offer our child through his religion studies and other life experiences. At Madonna High School the children receive far more than a high school education. MHS is a gem in the community.”

Spencer and Kasey Murphy, Parents

“From our initial visit prior to relocating to Huntington, we felt St. Joseph Catholic School was a great fit for our then preschooler and toddler. Seven years later, we have three school aged children attending and continue to be impressed with the caring teachers and staff, the positive environment, and the challenging academic rigor. We truly feel a part of the St. Joseph family, and it’s the best place for our children’s education.”

“Catholic schools provide my child a faith-based education while stressing the importance of self-discipline and commitment. My son's school encourages community involvement, healthy social relationships, and strives on academic excellence. My son feels safe, supported, and values his relationships with his classmates and school staff.”
The Famularcano Family
Sacred Heart Grade School
We chose SHGS because of its academic excellence. Having spent 7 years now with the SHGS community, we’ve found that it isn’t just our school, but our extended family! We love that the school has focused on teaching generosity, faith, and familyhood.
Laura Deiriggi, Parent
St. Francis de Sales Central Catholic School, Morgantown
"Catholic education is important to our family because it is an investment in our children's lives that is priceless in many ways. We especially value that the learning environment in Catholic schools is Christ centered and service oriented because we hope that our children will take those lessons with them beyond school. The smaller setting allows them to learn and grow in a calm and consistent environment, making it easier to focus and develop close relationships with friends and teachers. These experiences, along with the excellent academic standards, form a strong foundation in faith for our children that our family is thankful to have in our community."
Beki Parsons, Parent
Notre Dame High School, Clarksburg (non-Catholic family that commutes an hour to school)
“During my daughter’s middle school years at her previous school, it became clear that she needed more than was being offered. We wanted a private school that had a good reputation. The decision to enroll our daughter is worth any amount or distance we must travel.”
The Vollmer Family
Sacred Heart Grade School
We chose Sacred Heart Grade School because it is full of good friends who share love for each other and for God.
