Encouraging Excellence

The academic program at Louisville is designed to maximize students’ investment in their learning and success in achieving their goals.


Students at Louisville don’t go unnoticed – they are directed towards programs that fit their unique goals and fuel their enthusiasm.

Whether in college prep, honors, or AP-level courses, students are challenged to develop creative and critical-thinking skills that allow them to become constructive, contributing leaders in their community.

Although we are small in size, we offer a wide range of electives, both in the arts and core subject areas, for students to explore their interests.

Because we are small in size, the teachers at Louisville know their students well and are personally invested in their individual success.


In the end, they are truly “women who shape the world.”

Department Guide

Departments work closely and collaboratively to provide a challenging and relevant curriculum through the use of teaching strategies that engage, inspire and support students to develop the knowledge and skills essential for success in college and career readiness. All courses, including elective courses, offered by each department are UC/Cal State-approved.

Daily Block Schedule

Class periods are 80 minutes in length, and classes meet every other day. This allows students one day between class meetings, which helps students to manage daily assignments more effectively. The longer class period gives more time for varied activities, in-depth discussions, engaging labs, and more personalized attention.

Research has shown that students perform better in some courses at different times of the day. Using this information to support our students’ success, we also rotate the order of classes every day (if Math is first period on Monday, it will be the last period of the day on Wednesday). Click below for a day-by-day version of a sample schedule:

The student’s school day begins at 8:30 a.m. with alternating dismissal times of 1:25 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. Teachers are available from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. every day. This allows for teachers to be accessible  to students outside of the classroom every day of the week to provide additional personalized academic support.

Expand your opportunities

Online Courses

Louisville’s partnership with One Schoolhouse allows us to broaden educational opportunities available to students by expanding course selection while, at the same time, maintaining the all-girl environment and level of teaching expertise that Louisville students and parents expect.

The experience of taking small, highly-specialized classes with some of the most motivated high school girls in the country – taught by some of the best all-girl teachers in the country – is truly a special opportunity.


Academic Teams

Mock Trial – 11-Time L.A. County Champions!

Founded by the Constitutional Rights Foundation, the Mock Trial program was created to help students acquire a working knowledge of our judicial system, develop analytical abilities and communication skills, and gain an understanding of their obligations and responsibilities as participating members of our society.
Louisville High School has been sending a talented team of budding attorneys to the competition each year for over 40 years, and is one of many schools representing Los Angeles County with pride. Under the leadership and tutelage of Louisville faculty member Mr. Michael Telesca, Louisville’s Mock Trial team has won the Los Angeles County Senior Division Championship eleven times: ’79, ’80, ’92, ’94, ’98, ’00, ’04, ’07, ’09, ’13, and '20; and won a State Championship in 1993.

Model United Nations – Debate and Deliberate

Model United Nations, or MUN, is an academic simulation of the United Nations that aims to educate participants in current events, topics in international relations, diplomacy, and the agenda of the United Nations. Students role-play as diplomats representing a nation in a simulated session of a committee within the UN, such as the Security Council, the Human Rights Council, or a Crisis Committee. Conference participants employ a variety of communication, critical thinking, and conflict resolution skills in order to represent the policies of their country.


This club engages students in the basics about all important components of robotics and engineering: coding, debugging, and mechanical and electrical design of robots. Students work individually, in small teams, or as one team on various activities throughout the year. This is an opportunity for practical application of scientific principles, as time will be spent troubleshooting, debugging and practicing new skills with the assistance of the moderator. Students also participate in online events and skills competitions.
