I transferred to Louisville halfway through my sophomore year, and without a doubt, I can say that it has been one of the best decisions I've made! The teachers all care an exuberant amount for their students and have a genuine love for educating the next generation. The students are super kind and welcoming, and I couldn't have asked for a better first day!

When I started teaching here 14 years ago, I was immediately impressed with the cleanliness and beauty of the campus. The students are a pleasure to teach and when I go to work smiling and come home smiling; it is easy to understand the love and sense of family that exists on this campus. *****Five Star

My daughter transferred from another Catholic high school after her Freshman year to Louisville High School because she was miserable at her old school. She is so much happier now and loves going to school. Her first day at Louisville was the "best school day ever" according to her. She joined the swim and water polo teams and has a great and fun-filled social life. The all-girl school is connected to an all-boy school (Crespi Carmelite) so there are plenty of opportunities for co-ed events. Overall, she is thriving.

I am a Louisville grad (a million years ago) and my daughter is a freshman. She LOVES Louisville. Only 6 weeks in, she said it feels like "home." She loves her teachers, classes, and students. She's in 4 clubs in activities she never imagined before. She has friends in all 4 grades. She finds the whole community to be a very supportive environment. Academically, she's in honors/AP level, and it's challenging without being overwhelming. She has plenty of time for other activities. As for college, I only know from parents and recent grads Louisville girls earn admission to colleges of their choice. Many grads say they are totally prepared for college in fact, many say college is easy. Concerning "all-girls", this is so great. The girls are true to themselves and others without boys in the classroom. They let their guard down, relax and have so much fun. The first day was the best: seniors with banners, screaming and laughing. So much fun! Last point on this, there is plenty of interaction with the brother school, Crespi. So, if you're worried about social interaction with boys, don't. Louisville is truly a gift to my daughter and our family. I can't imagine her anywhere else.

Louisville was one of the best decisions I've made. Coming from a public Co-Ed School, I was scared that I would not fit in, but I could not have been more wrong. I absolutely love the environment and people that are here as most of us girls are mature and willing to work hard. The staff and faculty want the best for us, and we have the most gorgeous campus where we girls can thrive.

Louisville has really been my home away from home. It is my third year here and I have loved every moment of it through attending orientation with fun games all the way to our ring ceremony. One of the reasons I chose Louisville not only for their academics and sports but also for their environment is always so spirited no matter what part of camps and it makes it much more fun to come to school!

I may have not had originally wanted to go to this school but I opened my heart and mind and quickly found teachers who care about me as a person and my education. I found friends who are caring and kind. The relationships I have made are ones I hope to maintain for many years to come. I am so glad my parents convinced me to give Louisville a try.

Being a student at Louisville has been one of the best experiences of my life. Louisville constantly provides an environment that is welcoming and positive each day. I can confidently say that I show up to school excited to see my friends and learn new material in the classroom. I never feel like I do not belong or that I am not welcome in the community. Attending Louisville was the best choice that I have ever made and I am so grateful that I am surrounded by the community of Louisville.
