St. Laurence Catholic School is the largest Catholic school in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston and has a history of setting high expectations, then exceeding these goals. St. Laurence strives to awaken within students their spiritual, intellectual, social and creative talents. The diversity of the student body also reflects the culture and identity of the surrounding community.

As a National Blue Ribbon School, St. Laurence believes that students learn best in an environment that promotes empowerment and cares for individuals within a community of mutual trust, consideration and respect. Its teachers strive to instill a sense of community and belonging in a Christ-centered environment through service and commitment to excellence. Students are encouraged to try new things, to cultivate an appreciation for the arts and languages, and to discover their own spiritual, intellectual, social and creative talents.

The school curriculum aligns with archdiocesan and state guidelines while ensuring that benchmarks are achieved and individual needs of students are met. An emphasis on higher order thinking skills and application of knowledge motivates students to love learning. The school's investment in state-of-the-art tools (i.e., labs, media/arts centers, and digital devices) and its ongoing teacher training help ensure an excellent educational atmosphere.

St. Laurence Catholic School involves parents, parishioners and community members as active participants. Continual growth and improvement is recognized through the interactions of parents, faculty and parishioners, who work together to plan strategies for growth and vision. The personal relationship of parent, child, and educator gives life to the school.
