Phenomenal school, staff and educational experience for children to surround themselves in! We have 4 children here and have seen the changes brought about by the Diocese which have grown the school in a way that will benefit the entire community at OLP. The tuition assistance program through the Star Foundation is a wonderful aid so any child may attend this awesome school!
