Our Lady of Prompt Succor School
Alexandria, Louisiana

Our Lady of Prompt Succor School is located in the Garden District of Alexandria and serves students in grades Pre-School (age 3) through six from Rapides, Avoyelles, Allen and Grant Parishes. We endeavor to adhere strictly to the Catholic Christian philosophy of education and to provide an environment in which excellence can prevail. We exist primarily to serve our Catholic students and to help them grow in their Catholic faith and morality. However, our school is open to students of all faiths, and we respect their beliefs.

OLPS offers a diverse and challenging curriculum. All courses meet or exceed the basic state accreditation requirements. In addition to Reading/Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies, we offer a daily Religious Program, Weekly School Liturgy (K-6), Art (1-6), Computer (1-6), Physical Education (all grades), Music (all grades), Title I Reading and Math,  Library (all grades), Spanish (all grades) and the D.A.R.E. Program. All of our classrooms (Pre-School - grade 6) are equipped with interactive whiteboards and desktop computers.

We are blessed to have supportive parents and an active Home and School Association. We are also fortunate to have a Partnership in Education with Christus St. Frances Cabrini Hospital.
