Lourdes Sets Highest Ever Retention Rate


Our Lady of Lourdes School is delighted to announce that over 95% of families from the 2023-24 school year will be returning in the fall, the highest in our history.

Often seen as the sign of a successful private school, a retention rate of higher than 90% more importantly allows our school family to continue building solid relationships with each other and pick up at the beginning of the school year right where we left off in the spring without spending valuable instruction time on placement assessments.

Spots in the most common admissions entry points to Lourdes, junior kindergarten and 6th grade, became even more competitive this year, and 7th grade has a waiting list.

Older elementary school students look forward to all of the perks that our small school provides to middle schoolers. From lockers to elective choices and middle school specific clubs, they thrive by being able to be outstanding leaders in a small environment.

Lourdes is seen as an exceptional value in private education. With independent schools in Richmond offering tuition at three times the rate of Lourdes, we always want to be good stewards of your tuition dollars without sacrificing high-quality rigorous education. Accessible financial aid helps one-third of our families to thrive in our community and remain in our school family.

Have a wonderful summer, Lourdes Lions! We can’t wait to see you in August!
