Creating Well-Rounded Women in the Felician-Franciscan Tradition 

Ladywood High School, a Catholic college-preparatory school for young women, is committed to providing an outstanding educational environment within the Felician-Franciscan tradition and the mission of Blessed Mary Angela Truszkowska, foundress of the Felician Sisters.

Since 1950, Ladywood has educated over 6,000 alumnae; challenging them in their thinking and preparing them to
be leaders in their community, careers, and in the world.

Today, nearly 255 students from 37 communities and 4 counties attend Ladywood, experiencing a 65 year tradition
of academic excellence and the opportunity for intellectual, spiritual, and personal growth.

Our Mission

Ladywood High School is a Catholic college-preparatory school sponsored by the Felician Sisters following the Franciscan tradition. We are a community of administrators, faculty, staff, parents and guardians, and students who witness Christ to the world through the pursuit of Knowledge, the understanding of Truth, and by our action of Service to society.

Our Philosophy

Ladywood High School seeks to influence and guide the formation of Catholic/Christian women who have an inquiring, tolerant, and liberal personality; who face uncertainty and ambiguity with confidence; and who can formulate creative ways to meet the changes in present and future societies.

Our Objectives

Within the framework of a total Catholic/Christian environment, Ladywood High School aims to educate young women in the attainment of Catholic values, human potential, and the ability to put faith and knowledge into fruitful action.  Ladywood High School aims to harmoniously develop the whole person, so that she might live her earthly life to the fullest and, thereby, attain her eternal reward.
