Bishop Loughlin Memorial High School values a structured environment as a prelude to learning, growth and the development of caring relationships grounded in Christian values. The Lasallian tradition holds central the appreciation of each student’s uniqueness and views the teacher as a minister of the Gospel. Loughlin is a community of hope and stability for its students. Hope is fostered primarily through caring adults, sensitive and keenly aware of the struggles and unique challenges of adolescence experienced in urban America. Stability is rooted in good order, clearly proclaimed and justly secured through sound guidelines.
The curriculum and atmosphere of Loughlin are designed to meet a wide range of student skills. As a College Preparatory school, Advanced Placement and Honors’ courses are offered in all curricula areas for students who qualify for these courses. Loughlin students are encouraged to develop fully their personal talents and are given opportunities to use them in service to others. Classes in Religion and Physical Education encourage the spiritual and physical growth of all students at Loughlin. In addition to the traditional courses in Science, Mathematics, English and Social Studies, we provide students with a full range of art and music courses. Our extracurricular program is designed to continue learning even after the normal school day. Loughlin provides an atmosphere where respect for both self and others will grow as students meet with success, resolve personal conflicts, and make responsible decisions and value-choices.
Loughlin students, grounded in a solid education and a unique Loughlin spirit, are expected to have profound respect for all people, to be generous in sharing their gifts and talents, to make sound choices about the future, and to be positive contributors to the growth and life of the community.
