St. Mark's Cathedral School exterior

Nurturing hearts and minds since 1953

In the heart of the city, the tower of St. Mark’s Cathedral is a symbol to the citizens of Shreveport-Bossier of the Cathedral’s mission “to love and serve the world for Christ.” St. Mark’s Cathedral School is an extension of that mission and seeks to help its students, regardless of religious affiliation, realize their potential and become self-confident educationally, socially, and spiritually so that they may then reach out to help others in our community.

Founded in 1953, St. Mark’s Cathedral School is an Episcopal school in Shreveport, LA, serving boys and girls from age two through eighth grade. Our strong curriculum, coupled with small class sizes and age-appropriate worship and religion classes for all students, ensures that we nurture each student’s heart and mind. St. Mark’s is a ministry of St. Mark’s Cathedral in the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana, is fully accredited by the Southwest Association of Episcopal Schools (SAES), and is a member of the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS) and the National Association of Episcopal Schools (NAES).

Our hundreds of graduates have attended an impressive list of colleges and universities throughout the nation. Many have gone on to obtain graduate and professional degrees and great success in business and the professions. We are proud of their character and achievements—and that many have chosen to educate their own children at St. Mark’s.

"St. Mark’s provides a wholesome, engaging atmosphere for all students, teachers, and families. The education is challenging and interactive. The level of rigor is above all schools in the Shreveport area. Kids are well prepared for high school, and they are at the top of their class - wherever they may go. The children leave St. Mark’s with a good moral compass and education. The sense of community is big at St. Mark’s, and there are lots of ways to meet families at different school-wide events." - Anonymous
