Wheeling Jesuit University will recognize Catholic schools throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia as part of National Catholic Schools Week.

“As the only Catholic institution of higher learning in the state of West Virginia, Catholic Schools Week is a time to show our appreciation to the Catholic high schools around the state and the region. We celebration the education foundation and religious values these Catholic high schools provide the students entrusted in their care,” said Dr. Debra Townsley, WJU’s president. 

From Jan. 29-Feb. 2, WJU admissions representatives will travel to Catholic high schools throughout the tri-state region to deliver donuts to faculty and staff and to meet with prospective students. The admissions office also will deliver donuts to the Department of Catholic Schools at the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston Chancery in Wheeling.

“As West Virginia’s only Catholic university, Wheeling Jesuit University is proud to celebrate Catholic Schools Week. We are proud of our shared mission of educational excellence and service,” said Sean Doyle, associate vice president of Enrollment.

Wheeling Jesuit University strives to reward families for their investment in Catholic education. In addition to merit scholarships, students at West Virginia’s six Catholic high schools and Roman Catholic High School in Philadelphia receive $6,000 a year through the Bishop Michael J. Bransfield Scholarship. Students at other Catholic high schools, both nationally and internationally, receive $4,000 a year from WJU’s Catholic High School Scholarship.

“Wheeling Jesuit University offers a wonderful return on investment for students. Our alumni are well-prepared to enter professional life as creative and service-minded individuals,” said Doyle.
