The school seal consists of a shield on a field of white surrounded by two circles. In the outer circle are contained the name of the school, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy, and its location, Miami, Florida. The inner circle contains the school motto, “With Mary in All Things,” and the date of the school’s foundation, 1963.
On the upper half of the shield is Our Lady of Lourdes, the school’s patroness. The lower half of the shield is divided into two parts. The left section, containing a coconut palm tree and water, is adopted from the official coat of arms of the first Archbishop of Miami, Coleman F. Carroll. On the right half is the Immaculate Heart of Mary to whom the Sisters who staff the school are dedicated.
The school colors are blue and white. The school uniform, as well as the seal, stone of the school ring and official decorations, use these colors. Please refer to the school’s Visual Identity Manual for precise color values and tones.
The use of the Our Lady of Lourdes Academy logos can only be used with authorization by the school’s administration.
