St. Thomas More Catholic School
for being named as Exemplary High Performing Schools by the National Blue Ribbon Schools Program sponsored by the United States Department of Education.
Did you know that in the last four years, six Catholic schools from the Diocese of Baton Rouge have been named National Blue Ribbon Schools?
Most Blessed Sacrament, Catholic High School, St. Aloysisus, St. George, St. Joseph's Academy, and St. Thomas More.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the entire Diocese of Baton Rouge community during these difficult times. The historic flooding that has taken place has impacted nearly every corner of our diocese, and our parishes and schools are struggling to recover in an effort to provide for the spiritual and educational needs of their parishioners and students.
In order to support these efforts, the Diocese of Baton Rouge has established a special account, “Diocese of Baton Rouge Disaster Assistance Fund.” Monetary donations are critically needed at this time.
To donate, please make checks payable to “Diocese of Baton Rouge,” reference “Disaster Assistance Fund” in the memo section and mail to:

Since 1974, National Catholic Schools Week is the annual celebration of Catholic education in the United States. It starts the last Sunday in January and runs all week, which in 2017 is January 29 - February 4. The theme for the National Catholic Schools Week 2017 is "Catholic Schools: Communities of Faith, Knowledge and Service."
Schools typically observe the annual celebration week with Masses, open houses and other activities for students, families, parishioners and community members. Through these events, schools focus on the value Catholic education provides to young people and its contributions to our church, our communities and our nation.
The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) has prepared a newsletter about academic excellence in Catholic schools. The issue is here: NCEA Parent Newsletter
