A Message From the Principal

Welcome to the Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic School. We hope learning about us will help you appreciate what makes our school an excellent educational choice for your family.

Since 1954, OLLS has provided a faith-based, academically-engaging education to the families of Raleigh and the surrounding areas. Our current students appreciate that proud history as well as the sense of community that supports them as they are challenged to develop all of their talents – academic, spiritual, artistic and athletic.

Above all, our Catholic faith is at the heart of Lourdes. Through our religion-based curriculum, the celebration of the Sacraments, and many service opportunities, we are preparing the leaders of tomorrow. We believe that we are all children of God and that the values of faith, love, and charity are universal.

When you’re finished browsing our website, I encourage you to contact our admissions director, Anne Holder, to schedule a tour. There is no substitute for visiting our campus and experiencing our school first-hand. I am confident that you will quickly discover why the Lourdes experience is like no other. We look forward to serving you.

God Bless and Go Lions!

Mrs. Jannine Leblanc
