We Are Fisher Catholic
Lancaster and Fairfield County have been fortunate to have over a century of Catholic secondary education. The roots of this tradition reach back to 1891, when Father Nicholas Pilger, pastor of St. Mary Parish, built and dedicated a secondary school. The new St. Mary High School would be distinguished by high spiritual and academic standards.
Sisters of the Dominican order, already teaching in the grade school, began their long association with the high school. The school’s first graduating class in 1894 consisted of ten students. Over time the classes grew and St. Mary High School began to take on its own identity. This growth would result in the need for a new building.
Education is the food of youth, the delight of old age, the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity, and the provocation of grace in the soul
Having a proper balance of mind, body, and spirit is essential to the life of every person, especially our youth…
The Religious Formation and Ministry programs are founded on the basic premise that the Catholic School exists to further the new evangelization through intentional discipleship.

You and your friends deal with school issues every day. You know what we are doing right, and you can suggest changes that help us keep our schools safe.
At times, students like you overhear information that you don’t feel you can share. When someone uses drugs in the school, bullies, threatens violence, or commits illegal actions, it can hurt the school – and all of us.
We have subscribed to a service that allows students and parents to report this information anonymously. We hope the information outlined here will answer your questions and ease your mind – so you can help keep our school a safe place to learn.
We have contracted for this service through Security Voice, an independent company with no other ties to our school.
