Principal's Message


On behalf of the entire school community of Holy Name of Jesus School, I would like to welcome you. Holy Name of Jesus School is a Catholic, co-educational setting that serves PK3 through seventh grade students from all parts of the Greater New Orleans Area.

We believe that all children can be successful and are committed to a child-centered curriculum based on educational research. Our faith community allows students to feel safe while nurturing their academic, spiritual, social, and developmental growth. Furthermore, we believe in a strong partnership between school and family in order to facilitate the success of each student.

Holy Name of Jesus is a community in which we strive to open our eyes with faith, to open our ears with truth, and to open our hearts with love. Through this trinity, we hope to provide the ideal environment to educate our students and pass on our Catholic heritage. When this is accomplished, we will have prepared our children to successfully meet the challenges of the 21st century.

Our outstanding school community makes Holy Name of Jesus School a wonderful place to learn and grow.

In His Holy Name,

Jessica A. Dwyer, M.Ed.
