Closed School Transcripts

The Office of Archives & Records houses the records from nearly two dozen closed schools from around the Diocese of Wheeling-Charleston, while other records are still maintained in parishes and schools. Please consult this list for the location and contact information for the school whose records you are seeking. For those records stored in the diocesan archives, the majority of the records are limited to cumulative cards, and academic transcripts and immunization records (where applicable). Due to FERPA and privacy considerations, access to student records is limited to the person named in the record or parent/legal guardian of a minor child. Anyone else seeking information from these records must present proof of power-of-attorney. All requests must be accompanied by a copy of a valid photo identification.
