LHS Academics

Founded nearly 137 years ago by the Sisters of St. Francis, Lourdes High School’s core tradition is to educate and prepare students for success in higher education and for a lifetime of learning within the framework of our Catholic faith. With a history of faith-based values aligned with service opportunities our challenging academic curriculum inspires Lourdes students to become the change they wish to see in the world of tomorrow. The Lourdes High School community welcomes all students, and provides a balanced curriculum that focuses on the essential skills and knowledge students need to succeed in the 21st century global environment.
