Education Guide OLS Students in Science Class

Education Guide OLS Students in LibraryOur Lady of Sorrows Catholic School (OLS) has an exceptional student family relationship. Our  students, their families, and our staff are truly a close community. This family atmosphere sets the stage for us to individually foster the religious, academic, and social development of every child from 3K through 8th grades in a way other private schools may find challenging.

At OLS we provide a comprehensive academic Christ-centered curriculum with a variety of enrichment opportunities for your child in a safe environment. Our enhancements include a number of helpful resources at every level. We offer advanced math, a STEM program, robotics, Spanish, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Atrium), fine arts, leadership possibilities, competitive athletics, and much more. School counselors and resource teachers are also on our staff to help ensure a positive academic experience for everyone. We even offer before and after school care as well as other additional after school programs.
