Default Any U.S. Catholic schools taught by nuns?

I haven't looked into Catholic schooling too much as my husband and I just welcomed our first born baby last year and we will be moving around more since we're a military family at the moment.

I am just curious to know whether there are any current Catholic schools in this country taught by nuns or are the majority, if not all, completely staffed by lay teachers with one, if you're lucky, nun on board?

Thanks.

My high school had 5 or 6 nuns, and not all of them were teaching theology.

My daughter's PRE-K - 8th school has 4 nuns on staff - and one is the principal. We also have a pastor who is VERY involved in the school on a day to day basis.

My son's highschool has a nun who teaches. She teaches history. She is SCARY! She is about 6'5" tall and BUILT! I had parent teacher conferences with her, and I was intimidated! She is one tough teacher, too.

The kids do learn a lot, though. She has them writing 700-900 word essays 4 days a week.

These schools tend to have teaching nuns. I'm sure there are others....

I was taought by the Filippini Nuns. Here is a partial listing of their schools:

If you call Villa Walsh, I am sure they will point you to whatever may be local to you.

Also, lest I forget, there are the Dominicans of Nashville
http://www.nashvilledominican.org/Ap...tion/index.htm
This link includes a map to their locations.

Best wishes!

I was taught by the Filipini sisters, too, in New jersey, back when they wore the bonnet with the crepe ribbons with their habbits.

my first grade teacher, the woman who taught me to read (and I never stopped) was a nineteen year old postulant. unbelievable. i loved her completely!

the spiritus sanctus schools in Michigan (as noted above) are taught by the Dominican Sisters of Mary Mother of the Eucharist. The sisters are well formed and well educated. they employ some lay teachers, but are very selective in this, too.

The Dominican sisters are opening more of these schools all over the country. They opened one in my area this year, but not close enough to be a reasonable drive. My oldest goes to a Sisters of Mercy school, they only have one sister left teaching tho. She teaches math for the older grades.
