Louisville High School, an all-girls, Catholic high school, encourages young women to grow in confidence, integrity and faith, and challenges each to bring “Christ to all and all to Christ.” Founded in 1960, Louisville has had more than 5,000 graduates. Extracurricular activities include a wide variety of clubs, sports and other opportunities for enrichment. Nearly two-thirds of Louisville’s faculty members hold advanced degrees, including two doctorate degrees. A full-time guidance advisor for each grade level and a dedicated college advisor ensure that each student is known on an individual basis. Support personnel, including IT staff, are adept at the most current and innovative methods of teaching young women.
