Welcome, Friends!

Welcome to the Elk County Catholic School System webpage! The Catholic schools in St. Marys have a rich tradition of providing a first rate Catholic education to all who desire to grow in mind, body, and spirit. Please feel free to browse our website to learn more about what makes ECCSS so special!

Catholic Identity

There are ever-present reminders to our students that God is part of all that we do. Beyond the visible sacramentals of our faith, worship and prayer are part of every school day. Students come to know the person of Jesus Christ by learning and living their faith in action through service. Faith formation is woven into the fabric of a Catholic education.

Academics

Like the mission statement states, ECCSS is committed to the highest standards of academic excellence. All three schools are accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, and all teachers are certified. Eight college levels courses and three curriculum tracks are available at the high school. A Career Development Initiative that includes a partnership with area businesses has also been formed to help students discern career and educational paths.

Student Life

Students at the Elk County Catholic School System are presented with many opportunities both inside and outside the classroom. The Crusader sports program is one of the strongest and most respected in the area. Many extracurricular activities are available to students to further develop different aspects of their personalities.

Creative Programs

Our school system offers many opportunities for students to develop their artistic sides. We boast excellent music, art, and drama programs, and our instructors in all three departments are well-versed in their respective areas of expertise. ECCSS also hosts a number of summer camps that are geared toward those students who are drawn to the arts.
