Welcome to St. Clairsville High School, home of the Red Devils!

Our vision at St. Clairsville High School is to make every moment matter – to embrace every opportunity inside and outside the classroom to better ourselves and our students.  We recognize that today’s dynamic workforce will be putting more demand than ever on the students in our care.  It’s with this vision in mind that we craft engaging and authentic educational opportunities.

We offer a wide range of academic opportunities developed to ensure that our students are well-rounded and ready for whatever college or career path they choose.  Our core area teachers are experienced in their fields and dedicated to finding innovative ways to deliver a standards-based curriculum.  In addition to our core classes, students can be exposed to many other academic experiences.  Additional advanced courses include French, Spanish, AP Calculus, and Biology II, as well as many others.  A sample of our elective courses includes Creative Writing, Graphic Novel, and Psychology.  Through a partnership with our local career center, we also provide instruction in business, video and broadcast production, engineering, digital design, and construction technologies.  

Our experienced staff of coaches also provides students in our district with access to a wide range of top-tier athletic programming.  St. Clairsville participates and excels in both the Buckeye 8 Athletic League and the Ohio Valley Athletic Conference.  We offer football, soccer, volleyball, softball, baseball, swimming, track, cross-country, wrestling, basketball, golf, tennis, bowling, and cheering.

In addition, St. Clairsville offers many opportunities to pursue the fine arts.  Musical opportunities include competitive marching band, concert and jazz bands, winter indoor drumline and color guard, show choirs, chamber choirs, as well as many others.  The Red Devil Marching Band consistently competes at the state level, and our Singers Show Choir performs and competes regionally.   Musical productions and art studies are also available.

There are many other clubs and activities available to our students.  A short list of these opportunities includes culture club, student action committee, student council, recycling club, and National Honor Society.  Students can also compete regionally with the St. Clairsville Academic Quiz Team.

I have been working in the St. Clairsville School District for 17 years.  I taught English for ten years and served as Assistant Principal and District Test Coordinator for two years before becoming the principal.  I am excited to start the 2023-24 school year and look forward to serving our students and the community.
