Catholic Schools

Our Catholic Identity

The Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese of Alexandria ministers to the religious and academic needs of the community by administering and supervising the Catholic School System as it fulfills its primary goal of teaching and modeling the Catholic Faith. The Catholic School System provides a sound academic education that addresses the individual needs of the students as completely as possible. All the teachers and principals in the Catholic School System meet the teaching/administrative requirements of the State of Louisiana.

The Catholic School System is comprised of eight elementary and three high schools in the Diocese of Alexandria. All elementary schools have both a Pre-K and a Kindergarten program. The schools are located on nine sites, two of the schools actually being a Pre-K through twelve program. Four of these school sites are in Avoyelles Parish, three in Rapides Parish and one in Natchitoches Parish. A civil parish in Louisiana is known as a county in other parts of the United States.
