Our Middle School serves students in Grades 6-8 with an average of 20 students per class. Each day students follow a block schedule with an emphasis placed on religion and values as a benchmark for daily living. To best prepare our students, we offer many electives including STEM, Spanish I & II, Journalism, Coding, Advanced PE, Advanced Art, and Music. Students may graduate from Lourdes with up to 6 total high school credits in the following areas: Earth Science, World History, Spanish I, Spanish II, Algebra I, and Geometry. Our middle school students are required to take semester exams in December and May.
Our Lady of Lourdes’ Middle School students must also complete 20 hours of community service each school year. They receive instruction in the Catholic religion, practice being leaders of the community, engage in public speaking, and undertake team building.
We do not participate in SOL testing. Performance Series testing program takes place three times a year and over time, these tests provide a longitudinal view of student growth in Reading and Math.
Of our past 8th grade students that apply to a Governor’s, private, or specialty center, 97% are accepted. We are exceptionally proud of every student graduating from Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School and always look forward to hearing about their many successes to come.
