Catholic education has been around for many years here in DuBois. It all started when St. Catherine of Siena Church built the school for grade school and high school students on West Weber Avenue in the late 19th century. This school became one of the first parochial high schools in Pennsylvania to receive accreditation.

In the fall of 1961 they moved the high school to Hospital Avenue, where it was called DuBois Central Christian. This school was funded by many parishes in this area that still support us today.

Several years later in 1995, they renovated the lower part of the high school and held grades six through eight in that part of the building. It was the first middle school in the Diocese of Erie.

Because of many students enrolling in the school the DuBois Area Catholic School System decided to build another building that would keep up with the 21st century and bring pre-k to twelfth grade together. The building we know today as DCC was dedicated and blessed by Bishop Trautman on August 11th, 2002.
