Our Approach

We are Christ-Centered

OLPH strives to make a difference in the lives of individuals and in the wider community by challenging young people to find meaning and value in their lives through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. With Christ as the foundation, we provide an education that allows our students to reach their full potential as compassionate, contributing, life-giving members of society who are highly skilled, informed, grace giving, open, and just.

We Provide a Quality Education

As a Catholic School, we seek to provide not only a high-quality academic education, giving due emphasis to the fundamental skills for both learning, but also a faith and values based holistic education for all of life.

We Encourage Life to the Full

OLPH emphasizes personal and social development as fundamental enduring values and requirement in an ever-changing world. This holistic approach provides an educational foundation for life to the full, meaning the full development of the person – intellectually, spiritually, socially, emotionally, and physically. Social Emotional Learning is a priority in Catholic education and has been formally integrated into all areas of curriculum at OLPH School. Social and emotional well-being is recognized as fundamental to success in learning and life.

We are Welcoming and Inclusive

Catholic education occurs in welcoming, inclusive, and connected communities. Our school seeks to provide a genuine, safe and caring experience of community, to encourage students to appreciate the intrinsic worth of who they are, to value diversity and treat each other with dignity, enabling students in turn to promote and respect the dignity of all.

OLPH is welcoming to all who seek to share their life and wish to entrust their children’s future to a Catholic school because of our explicit goals and acknowledged educational quality.

We Partner with Parents

OLPH acknowledges and values parents as the first educators of their child and work in close partnership with families to develop young men and women who will become constructive and compassionate members of society.

Our school community is a place where the uniqueness and individuality of students and families is welcomed and the human dignity of each student is promoted.

Our dedicated teachers are one of the great strengths of our Catholic school community and are known for being caring and willing to go the extra mile for their students.
