Brief History
Holy Savior Menard Central High School has been a tradition in Alexandria for more than 120 years.  In 1893, Father Leonard Menard and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart opened a boys' school named St. Francis Xavier Commercial College.  Later renamed Menard Memorial High School, it offered a quality Catholic education to area males until 1967 when Menard was united with the area girls' school, Providence Central Academy, to form Holy Savior Menard Central High School at its present location.  In 1988, grades 7 and 8 were added to the school.
Since being named Holy Savior Menard Central High School, the following have served in the position of Principal:  Fr. Hugh Bigger, Fr. Douglas Hawkins, Fr. Warren Laroque, Sr. Cecile Claire Vanderlick, Sr. Michael Rose Stanzel, Mr. Pat O'Donnell, Mr. Terry J. Mayeux, Mr. Robert L.

How to Register:
To begin the registration process, visit the Holy Savior Menard website, pick up a registration packet from the school office, or call the office and one can be mailed to you. Inside the packet will be all the necessary forms for registration, as well as a complete list of fees and tution rates. A birth certificate and social security number are required for registration.

In order to simplify registration, to make the process more efficient and convenient for parents and students, and to better communicate with parents and students in course selection matters, Holy Savior Menard is implementing changes for its registration procedures.   The Guidance Office will be available to answer any questions regarding Course Selections from 8:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.  If special times are needed to discuss Course Selections, please call the Guidance Office for an appointment.  Once Course Selections are completed, you may send in your completed Registration Form with fee by March 15.   Those who have no questions may register at their earliest convenience.

The Registration fee is $400.00 for grades 7-11 and $450.00 for 12th, payable when the registration packet is submitted to the office.  This fee is NON REFUNDABLE.

As in the past, only after all required forms have been submitted and the registration fee has been received will a student’s course selection be entered into the computer.  At that point the registration process is considered complete.

Parents who choose to take advantage of our FACTS must complete the colored registration form in the registration packet and return it no later than March 15.

Late Registration: The registration fee after March 15 is $400.00 for grades 7-11 and $550 for 12th.
