Vandebilt Catholic High School, founded by the Marianite Sisters of Holy Cross in 1870 and continued by the Brothers of the Sacred Heart, is a diocesan co-educational institution for grades 8-12 in the Diocese of Houma-Thibodaux. We are committed to spiritual formation and academic excellence in an environment rooted in Catholic values and in the teachings of Jesus Christ.
We primarily serve Catholic students of our diocese in a caring and orderly atmosphere. We offer a college-preparatory curriculum and stress a personal spiritual approach to the education of the whole student through diverse academic, athletic, and co-curricular programs.
Vandebilt serves students in Houma and in surrounding communities. Currently 12.5% of the student body resides in Lafourche Parish, while 87.5% reside in Terrebonne Parish. Free bus transportation is provided each morning to students residing in the lower Lafourche area.
