Academic Participation

Students of Madonna High School are offered subjects which cover the traditional course offerings of college preparatory, general curriculum, fine arts, and selected business and vocational areas. These courses are geared to accommodate individual differences and ability levels and to give a truly balanced education in terms of theology, sciences, mathematics, languages, and the humanities.

Tutoring, at no additional cost to the parents, is provided by every teacher from 2:30 pm until 3:00 pm, Monday through Thursday. Additional times can be arranged by calling the teacher.


The students of Weirton Madonna High School may elect to take honors courses to further enhance their education. These courses are designed by the faculty to provide an in-depth analysis and study of additional topics within the curriculum. Students that successfully complete 12 honors courses may be eligible to graduate with honors. The student’s diploma and transcript will note that the student did complete the requirements of the honors program. In addition, at commencement, the student will wear a gold honors hood in addition to the regular cap and gown.


Students must have a grade of “A” or “B” in the regular course work; must complete all honors assignments in a timely fashion and according to the criteria established by the faculty; must have an “A” or “B” in the honors portion of the course. If the student does no meet any of these criteria, the course will be listed as “honors” on their transcript, but will not count toward the total number needed to graduate “With Honors”.
