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.

Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.

St. Louis Catholic School in Clarksville, Howard County, was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education.
