Our Lady of Sorrows Catholic School, established in 1896, fosters the religious, academic, and social development of every child in a safe environment.We recognize that knowledge enlightened by faith and realized through service is at the heart of a Catholic education. We not only recognize and meet the needs of the individual, but also teach through example the ideals of the Catholic faith. As teachers and administrators, we are prepared to adapt to the unique realities of our community, and the requirements needed to serve our OLS family. We offer a Wee-K3 and Wee-K4 preschool in addition to two classes at each grade level, kindergarten through 8th grades. Our comprehensive academic Christ-centered curriculum presents a safe environment with a variety of enrichment opportunities for each student including such resources as advanced math, innovative technology, robotics, Spanish, Catechesis of the Good Shepherd (Atrium), art, music, choir, leadership possibilities, private and group counseling, Resource Center capabilities, an exclusive community-involved Ultimate Author Day event, competitive athletics, and more. Before and after school care are offered, as well as other additional after school programs. OLS is committed to following all local health guidelines and recommendations as we emphasize prevention, protection, and preparedness in every action we take.
