Pope Pius XITheprogramof Holy Savior Catholic School isplanned to provide thetrainingthat fosters healthy development ofthe individual fromnurserythrough eighth grade, through closeassociation with parentsandcommunity. The worth of each individualentitles him toaneducation. We consider parents to be, in order oftimeandimportance, the first educator, but they requirethegreaterresources of groups. Thus, teachers maintain apositionofauthority that is exercised with Christian loveandcooperationfrom the parents. We are also responsible tosociety,which placesupon the teacher the care of educating theyoung and ofmaking themworthy citizens, honest and devoted to thegeneralwelfare. Webelieve the school's program should be based ontheworth anddignity of the child as he develops into anactiveparticipant inour democratic society. He should be taught inanatmosphere inwhich he can develop as a child of God and as asocialhuman being,an atmosphere in which he is made aware of Godinhimself and hisclassmates through respect for himself andothers.In thisdevelopment, the teacher is the leader and guide,settinggoodexamples by reflecting in his personal and professionallifeacommitment to Gospel values and Christian tradition.
  • We believe that:
  • -the child must experience success and a feeling ofsecurityandaffection.
  • -the child must be motivated and guided in acquiringtheskills,virtue and habits of heart and mind required toaddresswithChristian insight the multiple problems of injusticewhichfaceindividuals in our pluralistic society.
  • -the child must be provided with learningexperienceswhichenable him to transfer principles andgeneralizationsdeveloped inschool to situations outside of theschool.
  • -the child should be provided with opportunities tospeak,write,and compute with Christian attitudes, encouraged toexercisecriticalthinking and decision making, motivated toexperienceintellectualcuriosity that will lead him to discoveringanddeveloping hispotential as he increasingly understandsandappreciates theaccomplishments of others.
  • -the school must foster the apostolic consciousnessofthestudent by encouraging him to join inexperimentallearningactivities that give witness to Christianjustice andlove.
  • -each child is capable of growth and development andthatourteaching should reflect a conscientious and sustainedefforttokeep abreast of the time in the development ofeducationaltrends.By integrating the knowledge, faith, and valueshe gainshere, theHoly Savior student will think critically,discover a loveoflearning, live the Gospel message, reach out toothers inservice,further social justice, and deepen hisrelationship withGod.

Holy Savior, although in a small town, is still impressive. The teachers have experience with their positions, and there is a family atmosphere within the school. Holy Savior's campus is composed of a large main building, a gymnasium, a new cafeteria, and covered walkways connecting them all. There is also close access to the church and the Lockport baseball field. There are art classes, a computer lab, a library, a prayer room, and a band room. There are many athletic programs including basketball, softball, volleyball, soccer, and cheerleading. The school band and choir programs teach the important basics of music and more. Holy Savior has many clubs including Caritas, 4-H, Student Council, and a Beta Club. HSCS is the only school in the Diocese of Houma Thibodaux to be recognized as a National Junior Beta School of Distinction for their Beta Club. The faculty members are faith-filled people who genuinely care about each child. I would strongly recommend Holy Savior to anyone.
