Our Principal

Welcome to the Our Lady of Lourdes Interparish School website!

Our school serves students in grades K-8 from each Catholic parish in Columbia – Our Lady of Lourdes, Sacred
Heart, and St. Thomas More Newman Center. Our mission is to provide “a Christ-centered community
dedicated to the spiritual, intellectual, and moral development of each child.”

We believe that parents and teachers should be partners in helping each child develop spiritually and
academically and we would love the opportunity to serve your family by providing a high-quality Catholic
education from kindergarten through eighth grade. Our curriculum includes the core content areas such as
reading, language arts, math, science, and social studies as well as physical education, music, art, technology.
Our 7th and 8th grade students also receive instruction in Spanish. As a faith-based school, our students in all grade levels learn about God’s love through participation in religion classes, Mass, daily prayer, and community service. We also offer extra-curricular sports for grades 7 and 8 including football, volleyball, basketball, cheerleading, and track. We are an accredited school and are a member of the Missouri Nonpublic School Accrediting Association and the Missouri State High School Activities Association.
