Check out our All Schools ad in The Ouachita Citizen this week for Catholic Schools Week. Catholic Schools educate and form the whole child under the guidance of the Catholic Faith. If you are looking for a school for your family, we encourage you to book a tour at one of our local Catholic Schools to see the difference for yourself. A safe atmosphere, academic achievement, and servant leadership, along with the companionship of families with similar Christian values is the cornerstone of our schools. St. Frederick High School, Our Lady of Fatima and Jesus the Good Shepherd are enrolling students now for the 2022-23 school year. Our future looks bright, and we would love to show you why.
