Our family loves Lourdes. Our first child attends Lourdes and has flourished. We love the combination of education, faith, and community. We can't wait to send our second child there next year. We recommend this school anyone!

My children have attended Lourdes Catholic School since 2013, and we love the great teachers and staff, the faith-based education, the caring and nurturing environment, and the wonderful community too!

We have loved our experience at Lourdes. With 7 years under our belt and at least 14 more years before our youngest graduates, we're extremely happy with the decision to invest in our children's education at Lourdes. Lourdes is a family - if you're looking to be a part of a community of parents and teachers that cares for not only great education, but instilling morals and values, I highly recommend Lourdes Catholic School. I know that my kids are building a strong foundation for their future.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
