Welcome to Immaculate Conception School. In the proud tradition of the St. Mary Blue Wave, Immaculate Conception offers classes from pre-school to grade six in a safe, family oriented, and Christ centered atmosphere.
The mission of Immaculate Conception School is to continue the tradition of providing a challenging academic program integrated with Catholic teaching, empowering students to nurture their God-given abilities to follow Jesus' example of prayer, faith, service, and love.

The season of Lent will begin March 1. Students will attend the 8:15 Mass on Ash Wednesday. We will begin our weekly Stations of the Cross on Friday, March 3 at 9:30 am.
Lent is about much more than giving up desserts! This week’s family envelope includes a Lenten calendar with daily ideas for family activities that you can do throughout the season in preparation for the Passion of our Lord and His Resurrection. We also encourage all families to use the Rice Bowls that are in this week’s envelope.
Immaculate Conception Church will have a weekly bible study program during Lent following Stations of the Cross each Tuesday evening at 7:00 pm. All parents are invited.
The PTA’s annual Family Fun Night at the Skate Place in New Philadelphia will be Sunday, February 26 from 4:30 to 6:30. We hope you can join us for a great night of skating and fellowship. The PTA is paying all expenses – this is a free event for our families. The PTA is also purchasing new balls, jump ropes and other equipment for the playground. Thank you!!
We encourage all families to register early for next school year. Our pre-school and pre-kindergarten classes usually fill up very quickly. Registration packets are available on the Admissions page of this website and in the school office.
Now is the time to apply for tuition assistance through the FACTS program. Applications submitted by March 15 are also considered for diocesan assistance in addition to local help.
We will participate once again in the EdChoice program. Applications for this income based scholarship are available in the office. A family of four with an income of $49,200 or less can qualify for a scholarship that pays the entire cost of tuition. The scholarship is available to students entering kindergarten through fourth grade.
