Hurricane Laura blew through Southwest Louisiana on August 27, 2020, causing widespread destruction throughout the community. St. Louis Catholic School received heavy damage to nearly every structure on campus. Just as a new school year was about to begin, the campus was devastated and the school community was scattered. The school worked rapidly to complete a temporary facility using modular buildings, and students were able to return to in-person learning on campus.
The extent of damage called for rebuilding, and the decision was made to rebuild St. Louis Catholic High School on a 37-acre site on Corbina Road in east Lake Charles.
