Notre Dame de Lourdes School is a Catholic parish elementary school in the Archdiocese of Philadelphia offering academic programs for Pre-Kindergarten through 8th grade.
Our school is accredited by the Commission on Elementary Schools of the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools.
Our philosophy seeks a balance of academic disciplines realized in a curriculum where social, personal, physical, and spiritual activities and programs interrelate and augment one another.
Our purpose is to develop the whole Christian person giving priority to fostering in each child his/her best expression of self.
Academic excellence is paralleled by the opportunity for the student to nurture his/her relationship with God.
Through the daily, lived-out Christianity we share, we admire and esteem the goodness in one another with a reverence based on faith and understanding.
This dynamic infuses our relationship with the parish and civic community preparing our students to embrace the challenges of the 21st century.
