Our Mission

Lourdes Academy
changes lives
by providing a high quality
Catholic education infused
with gospel truths within a
safe, supportive, and
challenging learning
environment.  
Our Creed

At Lourdes Academy we
believe we are created in
God's image and therefore
we are good.
We believe we are God's
hands in the world and
we create our future.
We will be known by our
respect, responsibility,
and right choices.
With God's help
we believe we can make
our lives and the lives
of those around us richer
by sharing our talent,
integrity, and love.
We begin today!
Exciting Update!

We are thrilled to announce that because our enrollments are
so strong for the 2011-2012 school year,
we have added a Pre-K 3 class and a second Kindergarten!!

Mrs. Keysha Alexis, former kindergarten paraprofessional, will be teaching the three-year
old
class.  Mrs. Alexis recently graduated from Daytona State College with her associate's
degree (AA) in elementary education.

Miss Bernadette Siudock is joining our team as kindergarten teacher.  Miss Siudock
recently received her bachelor's degree (BS) in elementary education from Misericordia
University in Pennsylvania.  


Mrs. Marlene DiLorenzo will join the VPK-B (half-day) classroom to serve as a
paraprofessional.  Mrs. DiLorenzo has many years of experience as a teacher's aide and
is a certified VPK teacher.


Mrs. Kat Cherry has been hired to teach fourth grade.  Mrs. Cherry comes to us most
recently from the Jacksonville area, but she spent nearly 20 years teaching in Catholic and
Episcopal schools in Georgia.  

Please join me in welcoming the newest members of our
Lourdes Academy faculty!
