About Louisville Girls High School

Louisville Girls High School Ijebu Itele is owned and managed by the Institute of the Sisters of St. Louis, a religious group of women. The Institute was founded in 1842 in France by Abbe Eugene Marie Louis Bautain with a vision of ‘a world healed, unified and transformed by the saving wisdom of Christianity’ and a mission to particularly instruct the young, care for the sick and work for the salvation of souls. Presently, the central house (headquarters) is in Dublin, Ireland. In Nigeria, the provincial house where the leader and proprietress of the school, Sr. Isabel Mann with her team reside in Ibadan, the Oyo state capital.


The Sisters of St. Louis are in nine countries of the world: France, Ireland, Brazil, Nigeria, Ghana, Benin Republic, Ethiopia, USA, and the United Kingdom, but with a very active mission in Africa. The St. Louis Sisters arrived in Nigeria (Kano State) in 1948. There are presently about 140 sisters of St. Louis working in Nigeria.
Louisville Girls High School was established on 11th January 1998, in a quiet rural community, Ijebu Itele, devoid of all forms of distraction. It is an environment that is highly conducive to learning. There are presently sixty-five teachers, twenty-eight clerical and forty-five utility staff, and five hundred and eighteen (518) students for the 2016/2017 academic session.
