  • OLL is a Google Classroom school.
  • The school, mindful of its mission to be a witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students regardless of race, color, national origin, and/or ethnic origin to all rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school.The school does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, disability, medical condition, sex, or national and/or ethnic origin in the administration of educational policies and practices, scholarship programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs, although certain athletic leagues and other programs may limit participation and some archdiocesan schoolsoperate as single-sex schools.While the school does not discriminate against students with special needs, a full range of services may not always be available to them. Decisions concerning the admission and continued enrollment of a student in the school are based upon the student`s emotional, academic, and physical abilities and the resources available to the school in meeting the student`s needs.

My children and family are happy to be part of the OLL Community. My children have a solid catholic foundation through their studies and teachers and have made many friendships (grades 3 and 7). I have been happy with the school administrators and find the teachers easy to connect with.

Our Lady of Lourdes School is a loving, character building, academically strong school that prepared my children well for high school and beyond. The principal knows all the students and talks candidly with them. The teachers integrate technology into their lesson plans and often create learning tools from the Internet in addition to the textbooks. My children are responsible adults now due largely from their Catholic education at OLL.

My son attended the preschool at Our Lady of Lourdes, called Rose Cottage Preschool last year. From the moment I stepped in the door, you feel so welcome and at ease. My son loved the preschool and has flourished immensely there. It is wonderful to be a part of the Our Lady of Lourdes school and community. We love it and would highly recommended the preschool and school.
