Principal’s Welcome

Dear Prospective Parents and Visitors,

Welcome to our school’s website! We appreciate that you are taking the time to examine what our school has to offer, and to consider it as a future home for your child. Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School has a long history educating generations of children in the greater Slidell community.

The school is staffed by dedicated and well-qualified teachers, many of whom have been with us ten years or more. Combined, our administrative team has almost fifty years of experience at Our Lady of Lourdes. Many of our faculty and staff send their own children to our school. In fact, several of our teachers graduated from our school and have returned to teach here.

Our achievement test score averages rank us in the top 30% or higher in many subjects. Our students generally do very well in high school and many assume leadership roles in their respective high schools. Quite often our students compete for the highest rankings in their grade, and almost every year one of our graduates is honored as valedictorian or salutatorian of area high schools.

We are proud of our facilities, too. Our campus is composed of six buildings, most of which are less than four years old. After the devastation of Hurricane Katrina in 2005, four new buildings were erected to replace severely damaged older buildings. These buildings were constructed with safety, security, and the latest technology in mind. Our campus is both wired and wireless for internet access. We have a brand-new cafeteria and gym with a seating capacity greater than our school enrollment.

We are a faith-filled Catholic school upholding many Catholic traditions and practices. We consider prayer and religious instruction as vital parts of our days. Each morning and afternoon we pray, listen to announcements, and we honor student and staff birthdays.

We invite you to take an hour or so and visit our campus, meet our staff, and see if we are the right fit for your child.

See what a Difference The Right Start Can Make for your Child!

Michael Buras,

Principal
