Holy Savior Menard Central High School

BACK TO Private Schools

Alexandria's Holy Savior Menard Central High School is a 7th-through-12th-grade Catholic school with Advanced Placement and honors classes. Members of the 2014 graduating class collectively received nearly $1 million in college scholarship offers.

Holy Savior students in all grades benefit from an average student-to-teacher ratio of 15:1 and a fundamentals-focused curriculum. For high school students, the academic schedule is composed of a college preparatory track, numerous honors classes and advanced placement courses in English, biology and calculus. Electives include media arts, anatomy, theater, philosophy and foreign language instruction in French and Spanish.

Technology at Holy Savior is taught using four computer labs, a student wireless Internet network and laptops in the school's classrooms. Faith and leadership are tangible aspects of Holy Savior's academic life. All students receive instruction in the history of the Catholic Church and participate in annual off-campus retreats designed to bolster camaraderie and shared beliefs.

Students in every grade can also choose to participate in basketball, swim, tennis, golf and other team sports. Extracurricular options such as drum corps, art club, cheerleading, dance team, musical theater and an environmental club are also available. Holy Savior's quiz bowl team concluded an undefeated 2014 season as Louisiana high school champion. Students also connect to the surrounding community through events like the Art Month Competition at the Alexandria Museum of Art, where the artwork of one its students received first place in 2014.
