Our Story

Our Story

​St. Aloysius Catholic School serves 400 students in Preschool through 8th grade.  We have an active, caring community that will walk with you on your parenting journey.  With over 70% of our teachers having a Master’s degree, a veteran principal of ten years, two resource/enrichment specialists, and a dedicated counselor, we have all your bases covered.  We are AdvancED accredited and completed an onsite audit with the Kentucky Center for Safe Schools with flying colors.

St. Aloysius Catholic School was formally established in 1926.  At that time, it was a small, rural school run by the Sisters of Mercy.  Over the years, as Oldham County has grown, so has our parish and therefore, so has our school.  The last school expansion was in 1996.  Today, St. Aloysius houses 22 classrooms, a media center, a full size gym, a large cafeteria, several multipurpose rooms, and a thriving preschool.   In 2015-2016, enrollment for grades K-8 is 365 students with an average class size of 22.

In 2014, St. Aloysius Catholic School earned the prestigious National Blue Ribbon Award for Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.  This award is given to the top 50 private schools in the nation each year based on test scores, curriculum, and overall community involvement.

St. Aloysius has been such a positive experience for my son who started preschool there this year. I feel confident that he is in a safe environment and that his teachers truly care for him.

St Aloysius feels like home! Our principal greets the kids every morning with a smile or a joke, and says goodbye to them every afternoon! Our children are challenged in the classroom and learn the value of being kind! Our community is like family – we come together in times of need and celebrate in times of joy!
