Our Education Ministry began in September 1937 in the original Anderson farmhouse.
An increase of enrollment led to the building of the first brick school building and the convent in 1948. The building and grounds have been renovated and added to over the years.
A football field and stadium escalated the sports program, which began when Stagmaier Gym was built in 1953. In 1956 the covered walkway from the church to the school was added. The school also added four classrooms and the cafeteria size was doubled. In 1987, a third school building was built. This building consists of four classrooms, a school library, and a computer lab.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help School is approved by the Tennessee Department of Education, certified by Diocese of Knoxville, and accredited by the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and has grown from 60 students in 1937 to almost 350 in 2007. The Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary began the tradition of educational excellence in 1937 which is continued by lay faculty and staff today.
