WELCOME

Welcome to Holy Savior Menard! With more than 125 years of providing academic excellence to the students of Central Louisiana, it is with pride, and a blessing, that I can continue this tradition of service as principal. 

Rooted in a strong Catholic identity, Holy Savior Menard offers our students a rigorous college preparatory curriculum in a safe and orderly learning environment. We hold ourselves accountable for developing positive and meaningful relationships with each of our students, guiding them to reach their intellectual and spiritual potential.

Students are afforded the rigor of advanced placement and dual enrollment courses in all core content areas. And while striving for academic excellence, we also offer the support structures necessary to engage all students regardless of their learning styles or ability levels. 

As principal, I invite you to learn more about our school by visiting us in person, or by following us on Facebook, to get a better understanding of how Holy Savior Menard is developing our future leaders of tomorrow.

HISTORY

Holy Savior Menard's roots date back to 1884, when Father L. Menard became the eleventh pastor of St. Francis Xavier Commercial College and Catholic Church. On October 10, 1892, the works and prayers of Father Menard became a reality with the construction of the first school for boys in Alexandria. It was located on Second and Ogden Streets and was named the St. Francis Xavier Commercial College. In 1903, the school was rebuilt on the corner of Fourth and Beauregard Streets, next to the present St. Francis Xavier Cathedral. In 1915, the school was raised ten feet to provide a third floor and additional floor space to handle the increased enrollment.

Father Menard was also responsible for bringing the Sisters of Divine Providence and the Brothers of the Sacred Heart to Alexandria. The sisters taught at the St. Francis Xavier Girls Academy, founded in 1894, and later at Providence Academy, Providence Central, and currently at Our Lady of Prompt Succor Elementary School. The Brothers taught at the Commercial College and later at Menard Memorial High School.

MISSION


The schools of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Alexandria exist as the Church's response to the Gospel message, "TO TEACH AS JESUS DID." Each school espouses Catholic doctrine and the spirit of Vatican II in worship, community, justice, and social concerns. For a school to be Catholic, it must be seen, and it must see itself as an integral part of the Church's mission to spread God's word and to bring all peoples to Christ, helping them to grow in faith and love. Holy Savior Menard is the only diocesean school in the Diocese of Alexandria.
