A Catholic Girls School in the Benedictine Tradition

Upcoming Events

Welcome

      Thank you for taking the time to visit our website and learn more about St. Scholastica Academy.  Founded in 1903 by the Benedictine Sisters, the Academy is located in the heart of Covington, Louisiana.  SSA is the only all - girls Catholic High School on the Northshore serving students in grades 8 thru 12.  Our college-preparatory curriculum provides an atmosphere for intellectual growth in which students are given the opportunity to become independent, self-confident young women who are critical thinkers capable of functioning in today's society and into the future.
 
      While a visit to our website can give you a sense of the SSA community, philosophy and culture, nothing can replace a visit to our campus. We invite students to spend the day with us or to schedule a campus tour.  Be certain to join us at our Open House on Thursday, November 8th. I look forward to welcoming you to our historic campus.  Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions.
 
Kind Regards,
