Lourdes Academy is the nearest of our partnering high schools (only a 15 min walk!), and they have an impressive variety of College Credit and AP classes. Because the school is of a more personal size, students are able to participate practically in whichever sport they have an interest in! Because of their close location to the UW Oshkosh/CBA campus, students are able to easily walk over and take college-level classes.


“Foundations of English,” a course taught at Lourdes Academy helps new students learn academic English AND American culture. Also strong in Pre-Med, Business, and Information Technology courses, Lourdes students also have access to a full Honors course catalog. In addition to their phenomenal academics, Lourdes offers athletic programs and clubs to help bolster college admission paperwork, including swimming & diving, gymnastics, and golf teams.
