About Us

St. Paul Catholic School, a member of the schools of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, has served the Catholic and general population of Weirton since 1919. The school was established from a need for the immigrant population of a growing industrial area. As the northern West Virginia town of Weirton grew into city status, the educational needs for the Catholic population increased as well.

The current building was completed in 1962 and was designed with great foresight. The u-shaped design is perfect for departmentalization and pre-school separation. Even though the school is located in the downtown area, it is recessed behind the church and is safe and aesthetically isolated from downtown traffic and distractions. Over the years, the building and furniture have undergone an extensive revitalization project. Security doors with cameras were installed in 2014 and our HVAC system project was completed in 2016.

Currently, St. Paul Catholic School has 32 faculty and staff members available for almost 200 preschool through eighth-grade students. The preschool through fourth grades are in self-contained taught classrooms while fifth through eighth grades change classes and enjoy the middle school setting that we provide. St. Paul Catholic School offers a well-rounded program always striving for academic excellence while adding extracurricular activities in a safe and secure Christian atmosphere.
