The mission of St. Aloysius Catholic School is to educate the whole child in the Catholic tradition for a life of meaning and purpose. The hallmark of St. Aloysius Catholic School is the nurturing, loving, and fun atmosphere. Students who are happy and relaxed in an affirming environment are better prepared to maximize their potential in all areas.

St. Aloysius has a strong tradition of academic excellence. The school’s usage of the Core Knowledge Curriculum provides students with a coherent, cumulative, and content-specific curriculum. Dedicated, experienced, and nurturing faculty members employ innovative teaching strategies to support the curriculum. The administration continuously reviews assessment data and works with faculty to ensure that the curriculum, programs, culture, and policies support the school's mission. A key strength of the school is promoting and providing for the overall growth and development of all students by addressing their specific needs and abilities.

Through the school’s Development Program established in 1985, both the Annual Appeal and the Endowment Fund secure revenue for school operations and long-term financial stability which in turn allow for tuition costs to remain affordable. These funds help to provide students with excellent educational tools such as interactive whiteboards and iPads while also providing opportunities for teacher professional development. The Development Program offers forty-eight need-based scholarships, five of which are fully-funded minority scholarships.

As a ministry of St. Aloysius Church Parish, the school values the relationships shared with parishioners, the community, and the Diocese of Baton Rouge.
