School Notes

  • It is a major goal of Our Lady of Charity School to help each child develop spiritually, intellectually, emotionally, physically, morally, and socially to his/her fullest potential.  The children of Our Lady of Charity School are separate individuals who approach the world of learning with various levels of development, natural ability, and backgrounds.  Hence, they learn in different ways.  The teaching community will address these differences through a variety of learning experiences, adjusting the curriculum to the perceived needs of each child.  In all that it attempts to do, the school recognizes the parent as the primary educator of the child. The school builds on and enhances what is learned within the family; school and family are partners in the education of the child. Recognizing the need to develop the whole child, Our Lady of Charity School is dedicated to academic excellence in a Catholic environment.  We believe that this environment must fulfill five pillars of excellence: Catholic Spirit, Academic Excellence, Collaborative Leadership, Community Focus, and Commitment to Service.
