Resurrection Catholic School dates back to October 6, 1882, when five Sisters of Perpetual Adoration arrived in Pascagoula to establish a convent and conduct a school.
The Sisters began teaching in the school, called the Academy of the Guardian Angels, immediately; initial enrollment was 47 students.
In partnership with home, parish, and community, students are taught Christian attitudes and values in order to develop a moral, ethical, and spiritual foundation for making appropriate choices.
Students need an orderly, purposeful, caring atmosphere which is free from the threat of physical harm and conducive to teaching and learning.
Our mission is to provide a nurturing atmosphere where each student can reach his full potential as a well-educated, caring, and responsible Christian who can meet the challenges of a challenging society.

We LOVE this school. The teachers, the principal, they are like our second family, looking out for our son's best interest at all times. Since starting in kindergarten, he has learned alot about love and respect for others and he really is beginning to enjoy academics. From pottery to karate, even the extracurricular programs are excellent. The faculty and parents really focus on quality of arts and education, and most of all, set a Christian example!
