North Hills Regional Catholic Elementary Schools Announce Exciting Reorganization
Pittsburgh, PA"The North Hills Regional Catholic Elementary Schools (NHRCES), part of the Catholic Diocese of Pittsburgh, is undergoing an exciting reorganization, expanding its network from five to eight schools. This change aims to enhance the quality, accessibility, and sustainability of Catholic education in the region.

Effective July 1, 2024, NHRCES will welcome five schools from the Butler Area into its community:

  • Butler Catholic School in Butler
  • Holy Sepulcher School in Butler
  • Saint Kilian School in Cranberry Township
  • St. Gregory School in Zelienople
  • St. Wendelin School in Butler

In a strategic move, two schools from the original region will transition to other regions for better alignment. Christ the Divine Teacher Catholic Academy in Aspinwall will join the Pittsburgh East Regional Catholic Elementary Schools, and St. James School in Sewickley will move to the South Regional Catholic Elementary Schools.

The existing principals will continue to lead their respective schools, guided by the regional superintendent and supported by regional staff. Oversight and expertise will be provided by the governing board, composed of pastors and parishioners dedicated to the Catholic School ministry within the Diocese and northern communities. This inclusive governance model aims to enhance the accessibility, affordability, and sustainability of Catholic education for all families in the region.

"Our commitment is to educate the whole child"mind, body, and spirit"while fostering a strong moral foundation rooted in our Catholic faith," said Michael Killmeyer, Superintendent of NHRCES. "This reorganization not only strengthens our community but also ensures that every child has the opportunity to receive a high-quality Catholic education."

NHRCES looks forward to welcoming new families and continuing its mission of providing exceptional Catholic education. They invite families to explore the benefits of Catholic education within the newly expanded NHRCES community. To schedule a private tour at one or more of their schools, visit
