Vandebilt Catholic High School: As the only two Catholic high schools in the Houma-Thibodaux area, the football rivalry between E.D. White and Vandebilt has a long-running history. Oftentimes, the students of both schools will support their respective teams fervently, even if they have no interest in the sport. It is for this reason why E.D. White's rivalry with Vandebilt runs strong to this day.
Thibodaux High School: Thibodaux High and E.D. White share the same town. The football rivalry is known as "The Battle for Thibodaux." The first meeting for this battle was in 2007 with the Cardinals winning 30-14. In 2008, the Tigers claimed victory with a 13-3 score over the Cardinals. The teams usually compete against each other in the Thibodaux Jamboree to this day.
E.D. White has facilities for academic, athletic, and extracurricular activities. The E.D. White campus is composed of the main building, the Père-Ménard building (which houses the EDW Media Center and the Academic Enhancement Center), the Preston LeJune Gymnasium, the Cardinal baseball field, the Cardinal softball field, the football field, the St. Teresa music hall, the student union, and the Dr. Richard Morvant Gymnasium.
Improvements, renovations, and new projects have been completed to further the quality of education at the school. All English classrooms have had Smart Boards installed and the science laboratories have been updated as well.
