Our Lady of Lourdes

HIGH SCHOOL, Poughkeepsie, NY


Our students can expect an academic environment that prepares them to be responsible and independent learners who are accountable and dependable.  

The foundation of Lourdes’ academic experience is our student-faculty ratio, which makes it an ideal setting for faculty to know students — and know them well—and become their intellectual mentors.  Our curriculum demands that each student meets and exceeds the educational standards set by New York State Department of Education.  Traditional course offerings are enhanced by honors and advanced placement classes, college electives and academic support services.  

Students are continually encouraged to push their personal boundaries in and out of the classroom.  We foster the important partnership among administration, faculty, guidance counselors, students and parents, which provides students the best opportunities to reach their goals and prepare for their futures in college and beyond.
