Lourdes Central Catholic School

  • Lourdes Central Catholic Schools identifies message, community, service, and worship as the educational foundation upon which a partnership of home and school is built.
  • Recognizing parents as primary educators, and teachers as facilitators for learning, our students develop within an educational program rooted in Catholic faith that imparts knowledge, values, and life skills according to the individual needs and abilities of each child.
  • Education is a process that transcends the immediate future and with this shared vision, we strive to instill in our students a life-long commitment and societal responsibility to the Christian ideals of peace, justice, equality, and respect for all life.
  • The basic idea in the Montessori philosophy of education is that all children carry within themselves the person they will become.
  • In order to develop physical, intellectual, and spiritual potential to the fullest, the child must have freedom to achieve through order and self-discipline.
