MY children have been attending OLPH for 8 years and we have loved it! The teachers and administration are innovative, enthusiastic, and committed to nurturing a lifelong desire to learn. My shy son has come out of his shell, and his sister has learned to challenge herself and take risks. With a focus on virtues, my children are being nurtured every day to fulfill their spiritual and academic potential and to have a growth mindset. They have also had the opportunity to participate and learn new sports without the pressure of "trying out". When the pandemic hit last year, our school transitioned smoothly to online learning. I appreciated the thought that went into assignments and that my children didn`t have to spend 8 hours a day online for school. This year we were given the choice to come in person, or continue remotely. The calendar was adjusted with consideration to COVID, and there have been NO issues at all. Being able to attend school in person has greatly benefitted my children.

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!
