Guided by Gospel values and the charism of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, faculty and staff inspire young women to be leaders who impact global change by building community through a conscious love of God and love of the dear neighbor without distinction. As a woman of faith, woman of heart, woman of courage and woman of excellence, an OLP student is provided opportunities to put her faith into action, and become a transformative agent of change in our world.The school is committed to research-based practices, which foster intellectual curiosity and a passion for learning through an interdisciplinary lens, in order to form collaborative learners, visionaries and innovators. Looking toward preparing students for the future, critical thinking skills are woven across the curriculum, leveraging technology as a tool to facilitate student learning in an ever-changing world. An OLP student is encouraged to explore her passions within academic, athletic, co-curricular and spiritual activities, and develop a mindset ready to take risks and to strive for excellence.The school celebrates the uniqueness of the individual girl and intentionally strives to foster an inclusive community, celebrating sisterhood and unifying love. While OLP endeavors to ensure there is a richness of opportunities to challenge student thinking, cultivate confidence and expand her capacity, rigorous learning is consistently balanced in an environment of support and joy.
