OLA is a small school with a BIG heart. With one class per grade and small student-teacher ratio, OLA offers a warm, family-like, safe, and nurturing environment based upon Catholic values. My sons are flourishing academically, socially, and spiritually. OLA develops students with a holistic approach. The campus is very pretty as well.
