St. William is a Roman Catholic Parish located on the west side of Cincinnati, Ohio. Our parish has approximately 700 families and 272 children in the school from kindergarten through eighth grade, including the 27 children in our Autism scholarship program.

St. William School provides a faith-based education that recognizes that each student is an individual who has an opportunity to excel both spiritually and academically.

Our parish families, teachers and staff work together to create a spirit that instills an ongoing sense of community and service.

ST. WILLIAM FESTIVAL! August 15, 16, 17: Thanks to our sponsors, donors, volunteers and patrons, our biggest fundraiser of the year continues to be successful. Many festival booths and banners are sponsored by businesses. When possible, please patronize these businesses. All of the activity of advertising, sponsoring, donating, and the reciprocal patronizing makes our community stronger and more prosperous.

CLICK HERE for all the festival details, including volunteer opportunities. Remember that Friday night is "Adults Only Night" with music by the popular oldies band "The Rusty Griswolds." Find a babysitter and come join the fun! Each year our St. William Parish Festival depends on the support of everyone to make it a success. We hope you will attend one, two, or all three nights and bring your family and friends. Pray for beautiful weather!

Admission is FREE. Rides for the kids will be available starting at 6:00pm. Bring your own non-alcoholic drinks. Beer can be purchased on site. Grilled meats, plates and utensils are provided.

Gym Tiles Still Available! The St. William Athletic Association thanks all who have purchased commemorative gym tiles! We are pleased to report that the first set of 6x6 tiles have been installed and more are on the way! Please take a moment to walk by the gym entrance and look at the tiles that are already installed. We are working to locate a 12x12 tile that can be used and hope to start installing those shortly. Tiles are still available for purchase! Only 150 6x6 tiles remain and we cannot guarantee additional tiles will be available, so order yours today! Order forms are available by clicking here. Proceeds go towards the restoration of the gym floor and related items including protective tarps and padding. Have your name on the wall at St. William School - or honor a family member or alum with their own tile.
