At Our Lady of Lourdes, we strive to meet the needs of every child. We have a dedicated staff that works diligently to differentiate instruction to meet the students’ needs, interests, and learning styles. They are committed to making sure your child receives an excellent education as well as spiritual formation and physical health and wellness. Our curriculum is based on the recommendations of the Archdiocese of St. Louis as well as state and national standards. It is enhanced by a strong technology program. Each classroom has an interactive white board which allows the integration of technology in all content areas. We have iPad carts and laptops that are used in grades Preschool to 8th grade. Our students receive twice-weekly instruction in P.E., Music, and Spanish, and Library and Art lessons once weekly. STEM, Robotics, and Coding are also taught in many classrooms. Our Catholic values provide the foundation of everything we do. Our curriculum, technology, enrichment programs, extra-curricular activities, and athletics are all deeply rooted in our faith. We work as partners with parents in teaching our children. Our pastor, Fr. Jim Theby, is a frequent visitor in all the classrooms and is an example of faith in action.
