Who We Are
Our Lady of Lourdes Parish School is a preschool through eighth grade Catholic Elementary and Middle School under the Diocese of Sacramento Catholic School Department.
At Our Lady of Lourdes Parish School, we are committed to excellence: in faith, in academics, and in service. Our curriculum stresses academic achievement within a Christian community where the child feels that he/she is loved and respected by his/her peers as well as the teacher. Vatican II texts are used so that our theology is in compliance with the bishops of the world. United with each other in meaningful liturgy and prayer, the students can further come to an understanding of the Christian life.
The Diocesan curriculum guidelines, consistent with the Common Core guidelines, are followed for the teaching of all secular subject areas. The curriculum is marked by current content and fresh approaches to methodology. There is emphasis on principles rather than fact, on learning through problem solving rather than by precept. We strive to offer a program which makes use of many sources of reading material, a wide variety of audio-visual and technology tools, and a multi-text approach to the content areas.
