I went to Olph as a child back in the early 70s. My parents worked hard to send all of my brothers and sisters there. It was a wonderful experience! Of faith and belief and education, that I still have with me to this day. I sent my children there back in the 90s and early 2000s. They too have fond memories of attending school there. From the teacher's, coaches and administration as a whole. They have grown up to be wonderful adults, with their own families now. The tradition continues!! God bless Olph.

We are so happy to be a part of this school community. My children are excited to attend school; the staff is exceptional; and the atmosphere is friendly and loving. This is a wonderful faith-based school with dedicated staff, small student to teacher ratio, challenging curriculum, and lots of family-centered activities and events on campus to keep families involved and invested in their children's school.

This is our 3rd year at OLPH and I can honestly say my entire family is happier with the experience here with each passing year. My son loves his friends, the opportunities he has for learning and extracurricular activities and yes, even his teachers! My husband and I love the faith-based education in a loving environment and LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the community of other families. I wouldn't choose to send my child anywhere else!

And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
