Our Lady of Lourdes School was established in 1942 at what was fondly known as The Little Red School House where three Sisters of Mercy had the responsibility of teaching elementary subjects. Since the schools modest beginning, it has gradually grown in size and needs by 1953. Rev. Francis J. Dwyer, Pastor, inaugurated a fund-raising campaign and on September 15, 1957 our new school was dedicated. In 1973 the Mercy Sisters were recalled and Our Lady of Lourdes School was staffed with the Little Servant Sisters of the Immaculate Conception who continue to serve as principals and members of the faculty. Our Lady of Lourdes Schools mission is to provide an excellent Catholic education to its students. It is deeply committed to creating a superior academic program that challenges the intellectual prowess of every student, and at the same time to impart a Catholic, Christian education that takes its roots from the Gospel of Christ which challenges his/her spiritual being to conform to the moral and religious principles and values contained therein. Our religious program is intended to make the students faith become living, conscious, and active through instruction. It provides opportunities for students participation in the liturgy, sacraments, and various Church activities which will help the development of personal sanctity. It is intended to prepare students to understand changes in American society and the Church, and to be able to respond to them in the future with Christian commitment.
Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
