As we enter into every school day, we are focused in prayer and preparation on creating a school culture that offers each and every Lourdes student an environment that will foster both intellectual and spiritual growth.  We are a community of faith and learning, and we strive for academic excellence in a supportive environment.  

The benefits of a Lourdes education are unique to each and every student.  All students are academically challenged with a rigorous college preparatory curriculum, and exposed to clear value systems rooted in morality, dignity and respect.  

The foundation of Lourdes’ academic experience is our student-faculty ratio, which makes it an ideal setting for faculty to know students, know them well, and become their intellectual mentors.  We foster an important partnership among administration, faculty, students and parents, which provides students the best opportunities to reach their goals and prepare for their futures in college and beyond.  I am so blessed to lead such dedicated people who are truly invested in the mission of Our Lady of Lourdes High School.  

There is always something wonderful happening on the Lourdes campus.  From inspiring classroom activities, an extensive selection of clubs, competitive sports teams and community service programs, Lourdes is filled with a unique spirit as there is truly a place for everyone here.  At Lourdes, we continually stretch our limits to become all God calls us to be.  So many opportunities abound here, and our students are motivated to take advantage of all we offer.

I encourage you to explore our website and learn more about our programs and curriculum, our faculty and staff, and our school community. If you would like to learn more or schedule a visit to Lourdes, I invite you to contact our admissions office.

May God continue to bless our entire Lourdes community!
