Overview

In admitting students we look for young people who can profit from and contribute to the religious and educational mission of the school. While accepting the fact that there is a limit to what any one institution can do, we believe that the school is to serve a broad cross section of students with regard to both academic ability and socioeconomic status. Promoting and maintaining a diversity of students within the school community is a positive value consistent with the tradition of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart. Therefore, in the admission of students, high priority is given to those families who have supported our schools and Catholic schools in general, and great care is taken to ensure that the school does not become available only to the social, academic, or athletic elite.     

An annual Open House is held late fall each year for prospective students interested in attending Vandebilt Catholic the following school year. The Open House includes a school tour for prospective families highlighting academic, religious, athletic and co-curricular programs.

IIf your family would like a private tour, please contact Ms. Kaylee Pitre by  emailing kaylee.pitre@htdiocese.org or by calling Vandebilt Catholic at (985) 876-2551.

Vandebilt Catholic High School admits students of any religion or ethnic origin.  It does not discriminate on the basis of race, gender, or national origin in the administration of its admission policies, tuition assistance program, or any school-administered program.

Admission is based on the following considerations: a desire to attend Vandebilt Catholic, elementary school record, and an interview with the student.

Registration is held in February for the following school year. 

Vandebilt Catholic provides tuition assistance to families who are deemed financially in need.
