Buses are not permitted at this location. The mountain roads make navigating a Charter Bus very difficult.
Bishop Walsh School is a Pre-K-12 Catholic School in the Appalachian Mountains of Western Maryland. It is located in historic Cumberland, once the “Queen City” of Maryland. Most of Cumberland’s industry departed in the 1980s, leaving many proud, working-class people without jobs. We will be serving elderly and poor residents with home repair, as well as churches, service organizations, and nursing homes. The school rests on Haystack Mountain in a quiet, safe neighborhood with beautiful views, outdoor areas for free time, nature trails, a labyrinth for meditation and an outdoor natural cathedral, constructed by students, for prayer. The gym will be available for basketball. There is ample parking.
