I love OLM! We transferred our son from public school to OLM for grades 7/8. It was the best decision we made. From the moment we had our initial visit, we noticed a big difference in the kids. All the kids we saw in the hallway, even the little ones, had their heads up, gave eye contact, said hello to the principle and us. It's clear they instill these values in the kids. In the Covid Pandemic, the school has done an exceptional job handing things. Every person in that school is on the same page. They are all pitching in, going above and beyond, doing their part to make things run smoothly so the kids can attend school live each day. Every day I pull up to the school, I know I made the right choice and say a small prayer: "thank you for allowing me to send my son here. I'm grateful for the opportunity." While our previous school wasn't bad and they did what they could, I never felt this way. There is a difference. Thank you everyone at OLM for all you do!

OLM is the embodiment of academics, enrichment, and family. The teachers and administration are dedicated to ensuring the success of each student. The school is a great balance of academic and religious education. We like the fact that the school is not too large nor too small. The environment provides an opportunity for student growth. We love knowing our kids can attend this school through eighth grade. We wouldn't consider sending our children anywhere else!

Best regional school! OLM is a true community of families and faculty. We have sent all of our kids here for 8 years and look forward to many more. Teachers are caring, go above and beyond and keep structure for excelling in academics. Sports, robotics, mock trial, Science Olympiad and many more ways to be engaged!

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
