  • Our Lady of Lourdes School graduates 100% of our eighth grade students. All graduates who test are accepted into a Catholic High School. Technology such as interactive Smart Boards and Qwizdom audience response systems are integrated into the classrooms for hands-on learning. The school is equipped with three Internet accessable computer labs. Media focus was introduced to the junior high students in 2009 allowing students to "televise" live broadcasts throughout the school. All faculty and staff members model the Josephson Institute Character Pillars setting the example for all students to build character. the school wide learning expectations are that upon graduation from O.L.L. the child will be a responsible citizen, a self-aware individual, an effective communicator, a life-long learner and a faith-filled Catholic.

School Reviews

My son attended the preschool at Our Lady of Lourdes, called Rose Cottage Preschool last year. From the moment I stepped in the door, you feel so welcome and at ease. My son loved the preschool and has flourished immensely there. It is wonderful to be a part of the Our Lady of Lourdes school and community. We love it and would highly recommended the preschool and school.
