I can't say enough about how wonderful Our Lady of Grace has been for my daughter and our family. The entire school community is supportive and nurturing offering their very best day in and day out for the benefit of all of the children. The academics and enrichment programs are excellent. My daughter frequently teaches me things she has learned in school and she is so proud of her accomplishments. She is becoming a confident, intelligent, (and goofy) young lady who cares for those around her and the world as a whole. When the earthquake and Tsunami hit Japan in 2011, she told me about it before I even heard it on the news. She then asked how she could help the kids in Japan. She asked me to reach out to the Principal to see if the school kids could help and the following week the children took up a collection to help those impacted by the devastation in Japan - pretty big endeavor for a child in kindergarten at the time. As parents we try to make the best choice for our kids, but we don't always know if we have. Our decision to send our daughter to OLGS has been the best decision. I couldn't ask for a better environment and educational experience for her.

We moved to the area because of the great public schools then decided to try Kindergarten at Our Lady of Grace. Our daughter has now been there for 3 years and we all love it. Our friends and family are always commenting on her maturity level, and especially her confidence. I see her classmates and they all have the same attributes, and are especially caring and compassionate to each other. Her teachers and schoolmates are an extension of our family and we couldn't be happier with the sense of community, not to mention the curriculum. As a working parent, the Playcenters program offered on site is perfect. We couldn't be happier with the school and everyone connected!

I have four children ranging from kindergarten to middle school through the years. The Our Lady of Grace community becomes family. Having switched from another local catholic school I can compare. The academic program is stronger and enhanced because of the small nature of the school, I feel each child gets attention that they would not in the other local schools. The music, arts and foreign language along with the extra curricular after school activities are superior to anything available in the area. With our STEM designation, we are only getting better and stronger!

As parents of two students at Our Lady of Grace, my wife and I cannot say enough wonderful things about the school. Before choosing OLGS, we researched and visited other private and public schools in the area. It was only at OLGS, though, that we truly felt at home. Now that we are part of the OLGS family, we see that the school truly is filled with incredibly caring and nurturing teachers who do everything they can to help students excel. We have even reached teachers via email as late as 11:00 at night! Our children frequently come home from school and teach us new things, and our oldest is in Kindergarten! For all these reasons, and many, many more, we highly recommend OLGS!

What is really important in choosing a private school? Ranks? Academics? Financial aid? Sports programs? Arts programs? One of these criteria doesn't matter. The others do.
