By the end of their time with us, all St. Francis Central Catholic students meet and exceed all state requirements for promotion to high school. There is an opportunity for all students to earn three high school credits during their time at St. Francis. Most students will go to high school with one or more high school credits.


St. Francis Central Catholic School is a proud part of the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston and a fully accredited member of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI). St. Francis Central Catholic was initially granted accreditation on 1/8/1999 and is accredited through 6/30/2014.

A national task force is creating a resource guide for teachers and instructional leaders to infuse Catholic identity elements into school level curriculum and instruction based on the Catholic Academic Standards of Excellence (CASE).

Publication of the National Standards and Benchmarks (March, 2012) marks only the beginning of ongoing collaboration and action among those committed to the future of Catholic education.

St. Francis Central Catholic recently completed a comprehensive review of the schools programs in accordance with the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools.
