Opelousas Catholic School Reviews

I have been a student at Opelousas Catholic School since kindergarten and I am now a senior. What I love most about my school is how we are a family on campus. The teachers, faculty, and students all have a professional relationship. Each teacher shows their love and best interest for every student in the class. Since Mrs. Heintz has taken the reins, she has made our school an even better place to be. She has improved our school so much in just the two years she's been here. My favorite thing about her is her personal involvement with our student body. She is always showing us that what we think and feel as students matter and that she holds it to the highest of standards. Opelousas Catholic has made me the educated person I am today and has also crafted my faith so that I am ready for the future. I can't wait to be alumni and see the future for our great school and it's community.

Opelousas Catholic is a great private Catholic school for the area that it's in. The academics are becoming better and better as time goes. It's a very close knit family atmosphere because it's from pre-k to twelfth grade. Many of the parents, teachers, and administrators are alumni of the school or connected to it in some way or another. The school is becoming focused on all sports and giving recognition to all athletes and their achievements. The religious aspect of Opelousas Catholic is amazing. Religion is a big part of every aspect of the school and in my eyes the best Catholic school in this area.
I am an Opelousas catholic alumni and I started attending in the 3rd grade and met some of my best friends today. I played basketball, ran track, played softball, and was on pep squad. My high school career was a great experience. Everyone there knew each other so it wasn’t like a big school where it is easy to become lonely. It was a great school I would recommend them gettin better teachers to prep them for college.
