Our Lady Catholic School

Our Lady School Building

At Our Lady Catholic School, we are committed to educating children in a community of faith and knowledge. Choosing an elementary school is an important decision. We are proud to be able to teach and live our Christian values on a daily basis. Students are taught to think critically, work independently, communicate effectively, and show respect for themselves, for others and for the community. Regardless of where your child will attend high school, our students are recognized as kind, respectful, responsible, independent and academically prepared with excellent leadership skills. I look forward to the opportunity to partner with you in the education of your child. I invite you to contact me to tour Our Lady and to experience for yourself and your family all we have to offer.

Our Lady Catholic School fosters a faith-filled and academically strong environment, supporting families and working with the faith community to encourage the formation of the whole child through the examples and teachings of Jesus Christ.


Our Lady School is dedicated to providing excellence in Catholic education by developing Christ-centered individuals enabled to transform society. Research states children’s moral compass is formed from the ages of 6-12 years old. We are proud to be able to teach and live our Christian values on a daily basis. While not all students who attend Our Lady are Catholic, all do share experiences of faith, values and moral character development in the Catholic tradition.


Catholic identity is reflected throughout the curriculum. It is designed to encourage students to become the best they can be spiritually, academically, and socially. Academics are balanced with a broad variety of leadership opportunities, co-curricular activities, educational trips and many opportunities for service in our community.

Dynamic Community

Catholic schools have always been places where outreach to others has been evident. Our students understand that through service to others, they are also committing themselves to serving God. They are taught to share their time, talents, and resources with others in need in our community and beyond. Students engage in service projects as a learning experience and as a witness to their Christian faith.
