Catholic Girls Schools records?

I am hoping someone can help me find a way to find more information on my grandmother. We have very limited information and are having a difficult time finding history! We know her parents died when she was about 5-6years old and she was raised in a Catholic girls school/orphanage in Washington (not sure of where in washington) from about 1929-1940. I am curious if anyone knows a way to search through catholic school/orphanage records during that time?? First name Lee or Lejean, Last name Lerae, born 1924. Father's name Pierre in case anyone has information on those names :)
Thanks in advance!!

You might try looking at Sacred Heart Orphanage (it is now Villa Academy) but at the time it was a convent/orphanage. My mother was raised there. I looked through the 1930 census and didnt see anything that looked similar to the name you posted above, or any sort of variation, but maybe something will jump out at you.

enumeration district 17-24 in case that helps any
