Catholic Values

At OLS, we believe that, in addition to a challenging curriculum and 21st-century education tools, the Catholic faith should be at the heart of everything we do:

  • Religious education is a core component of our curriculum.
  • Each day begins with a morning prayer.
  • At the monthly Student Mass, all students get the opportunity to participate through readings, bringing up the gifts, and more.
  • Throughout the year, each class participates in service projects to help those in need.

Innovative Education

OLS students have access to the latest in education technology – SMARTBoards, iPads, WiFi and more. In addition, earlier this year, we opened our brand new Interactive Library Media Center! This center is a state-of-the-art computer lab & library, containing interactive workspaces for students to build projects, research assignments and more.

We also utilize cutting-edge educational apps, such as the award-winning BrainPop and IXL, a comprehensive mathematics skills program.

We are very proud of the wide range of options available to OLS students, and plan to keep rolling out the best educational programs in the future.
