Foundation of Faith

Our curriculum is focused on providing a faith-based education encompassing everything we do at Our Lady of Lourdes. We live our Faith not only in the classroom or during sporting events, but in our daily lives with community outreach service projects. While we are a Catholic school, we welcome students of all faiths and backgrounds into our school community.

Motto

Committed to faith. Dedicated to academics. Connected to community.

Curriculum

Our Lady of Lourdes School is accredited by the State of Nebraska and uses the Omaha Archdiocesan standards-based curriculum to drive and focus our instruction. Our academic curriculum includes these core areas: religion, language arts, math, social studies, and science. Additionally, we offer Spanish, music, physical education, art, and library media. All students in fifth – eighth grade discover online Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing as part of our science curriculum.

Technology in the Classroom

Our Lady of Lourdes is a blended learning community, which means we combine traditional classroom instruction with computer-mediated activities. Technology is used to transform and improve the learning process for our students. Blended learning helps us reach and teach students more effectively. It also provides our educators with an opportunity to collect data to help customize instruction and assessment of students based on individual needs.

Whether your child is interested in academic clubs, programs to express creativity, or sports, Our Lady of Lourdes has something for every student. We offer a wide variety of extracurricular programs to enhance student learning in math, science, engineering, reading, writing, religion, art, and music. Students can take part in robotics, poetry, art, reading, math, student council, knitting, and Bible studies. Our athletic program includes soccer, basketball, volleyball, baseball, and football.
