St. Louis School

Be it known to all who enter here that
is the reason for this school, the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes, the model of its faculty, and the inspiration for its students.

At St. Louis School this greeting welcomes all who enter. It is a proclamation of our Catholic faith that drives the vision and mission of the comprehensive, high school preparatory education that St. Louis School has provided for more than 90 years. Our goal is to teach as Jesus taught.

Service with a Smile!

St. Louis School students recently participated in a time-honored SLS tradition – Middle School Service Day! Over 40 middle-school students began the day with Mass and then broke out into small “landscaping” crews across our parish to help beautify the Friary and the residences of some of our parishioners.

We had a great afternoon participating in the Maryland STEM Festival and hosting our Create & Code event.  Our current X-STEM Ambassadors led our guests in various STEM activities that explored augmented reality, simple coding with Ozobots, building challenges with Legos and Magnet Tiles, building electrical circuits and learning about

Costumes and Pumpkins and Candy, Oh My!

We had so much fun playing dress-up and make-believe for Halloween! Our primary students paraded through the campus with our middle school students lending applause and encouragement! Superheroes, angels, and princesses of every kind strolled the parade route with our teacher emojis falling right in line. Thanks to our wonderful

Taking every opportunity to pray

Recently Mrs. Hession took advantage of the beautiful fall weather and instructed her religion class around the statue of Mary just outside the entry to school.

Our Kindergarten students welcomed some extra-special visitors for our annual “Donuts with Dad” event. Football was the ever-popular theme and our Dad’s did a great job keeping up with their kiddos and playing with Legos, trying to win at corn hole and posing for pictures. Thanks to all the Dads,

8th grade seeing RED!

Our 8th graders have received their much anticipated red sweatshirts, a visible sign of their last year at SLS.  For some reason, this tradition is a favorite – and outward sign of the leadership position they hold as students and quite a “fashion statement” after wearing navy and khaki uniforms

Celebrating our Blue Ribbon!

On hearing the news that our school had been recognized as a 2017 National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, the faculty, staff and students began celebrating!

St. Louis Catholic School in Clarksville, Howard County, was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education. The designation is the highest academic honor bestowed upon a school by the U.S. Department of Education. The Blue Ribbon Schools Program honors public and private elementary, middle and high school that are either academically superior or that demonstrate dramatic gains in student achievement to high levels.“St. Louis’ remarkable achievement underscores the value Catholic schools serve to the children of our community,” Archbishop Edwin F. O’Brien said. “Catholic schools can compete at the highest levels of education and excel because they strive heroically to meet the needs of every student. I am proud of St. Louis and congratulate the students, teachers, parents and the entire parish community on this outstanding honor.”

In the field of educational psychology, experts have many different theories of motivation. One of my favorites is ‘Achievement Goal Theory’.
