Our Lady of Lourdes School is staffed by the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, Mercedarian Friars, and lay teachers. Lourdes is a “community” Catholic school. Our primary goal is to offer affordable, quality education to the children living in Overbrook and Wynnefield communities. Lourdes has been in existence since 1908. Today, we continue to educate children of all ethnic and religious backgrounds.

The school building is now occupied by a charter school. I guess the end of an era has truly come...:-(
It's official, at 11am Our Lady of Lourdes School closed it's doors to the students for the last time...:-(. The school may be closed, but the memories will live forever. Have a great summer!!
Yesterday's Farewell Block Party was a SUCCESS! I'm sad that the only school home my kids have known is closing, but I have come to the realization that this is a good thing. We all have to use this opportunity for growth, whether it's academically, socially or financially. I'm praying that all the families find new school homes & that the teachers/staff are not out of work too long and that they find new positions that provide them with the happiness that they've experienced at OLL.
I started this page to keep the communication lines open between the parents, students & the school. Since the school will be closing it's doors in a few weeks & my children will no longer be students there - I am looking for someone to take over as "Admin" for the page. Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks...
I went to the open house at St. Rose of Lima yesterday & I must say I was pleasantly surprised. They offer more activities then OLL, have a partnership with Villanova & St. Joes & the tuition is MUCH cheaper!! I think that we may have been "sleeping" on them because of their location. If you still haven't found a school yet, check them out - you might like what you see. Good luck!!
It is really pathetic that with a school of over 200 students, only a handful came out & supported the rallies! All you did was prove Father James right. If you are not willing to fight for your kids education, then who will? With that said, I want to give a big THANK YOU to the parents & students that came out. At least WE can say we went down fighting!!!
Rally to save Our Lady of Lourdes School tomorrow morning at 9am & Monday morning at 9am. Come by & show your support!!!
Save Our School rally scheduled for Sunday morning at 9am & also Monday morning at 9am. Bring your signs, your friends, your children, your neighbors and anyone else that's willing to support our fight! Please come out!!!
Our fight has begun!! OLL is scheduled to make their appeal on Thursday, January 19th. Father James & Ms. Noone will represent the school. If you have any information that may help the cause, please forward it to the office by Tuesday, the 17th. You know what they say "United we stand, divided we fall"! Help SAVE OUR SCHOOL!
