Appalachia High was formed from the amalgamation of St. Joseph's High School in St. George's and Assumption High School in Stephenville Crossing. June of 2001 saw the closure of Assumption High School and St. Joseph's High School and in September of that year the new Appalachia High School opened its doors to the students of the area. It is a grade 9 to 12 school with a student population of about 160 students and serves the communities of St. George's, Stephenville Crossing, Black Duck Siding, Matis Point, and Flat Bay. The new extensions to Appalachia High include a link that joins the high school with Our Lady of Mercy Elementary School.
