History

St. Louis Catholic School opened its doors in September, 1963 as the parish school for St. Louis Catholic Church. The school was named for Bishop Louis Reicher, who was Bishop of the Diocese of Austin at that time. During its first year, the school housed grades 1 through 7. 8th graders attended Reicher Catholic High School until the 1964-65 school year. In 1979, a kindergarten was added. In 2007, PreK-3 and PreK-4 classes were added.

St. Louis Catholic School is known as one of the top private educational institutions in Waco, Texas because of its high standards and its ability to educate the whole child; academically, physically and spiritually.
