Why Lourdes Academy?
Through our mission, we seek to change lives each day in our school. Through our loving words and actions, we create a safe and supportive learning environment where all are welcome in our family. Working with one another in our Catholic faith, we change the world.
The school community is Christ-centered and recognizes the value and uniqueness of each person as a child of God. Serving as role models of faith, our dedicated faculty meet students where they are in their educational journey and guide them in reaching their fullest potential academically, spiritually, and socially.
Through prayer, liturgy, service to others, and religious formation, our students are encouraged to integrate their Catholic faith and values with everyday life experiences by sharing their time, talent, and treasure.
But Jesus said, “Let the children alone, and do not hinder them from coming to Me; for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”
Throughout the year students are invited to grow in their personal relationship with God, serve others, learn about the Catholic faith, receive the sacraments and worship together. They participate in weekly Masses, prayer services, sacramental preparation, Advent, Lent and other celebrations of the Church Year. Students put their faith in action through Campus Ministry where they collaborate with teachers and priests to lead and participate in community outreach, service projects and retreats that unite and strengthen their class communities and provide creative opportunities to explore their spiritual relationship with God.
We are a team of dedicated, enthusiastic, kind, and moral educators. From Early Childhood to the eighth grade, the faculty is devoted to the well being and success of every student. All members of the faculty hold a Bachelor’s Degree, and several hold advanced degrees. All faculty members are certified in the State of Florida to teach in their assigned instructional areas. They have been, and continue to be trained in the most current educational trends, and have the experience to implement the best instructional practices in the classroom.
Our entire faculty and staff base their educational expertise around the Lourdes Academy mission and work to ensure that each student is successful in reaching the Lourdes Academy vision.
