WE ARE CHS
THREE SCHOOLS IN ONE
We are much more than our name conveys. Located in New Iberia, Louisiana, Catholic High hosts grades 4 through 12 on one campus. This allows us to offer a unique continuity in curriculum across all grades, ensuring that every child receives a quality education and is prepared for the next level. Our elementary, middle school, and high school students each have their own unique spaces and age-appropriate opportunities; yet, the school comes together for things like masses, pep rallies, and athletic events.

Meet our talented faculty and staff.
Catholic High School continues a long and distinguished history of Catholic education in Iberia Parish, beginning with the opening of Mount Carmel Academy for girls in 1870 by the Sisters of Mount Carmel. Three years later, Holy Cross College began offering a college preparatory education to young men of the area.
In 1918 Holy Cross, now named St. Peter’s College, moved to East Main Street with 106 students and 5 Christian Brothers. The growing school moved to de La Salle Drive in 1957, outside the parish boundary of St. Peter’s Catholic Church, taking the name Catholic High School. The school became co-educational in 1987 and continues to pride itself on its rich history and traditions.
