On the Early Childhood Level (K-3) children have opportunities to be involved with parents, grandparents, other students in the school, as well as community servants in a variety of activities. On the intermediate (4-5-6) and upper levels (7-8) the emphasis shifts from family-centered activities to peer-centered activities. However, there are still opportunities for family-student interaction.

Student Activities

Our Lady students participate in a  variety of religious, cultural, and athletic opportunities throughout the school year.


Students attend Mass as a body on Fridays and Holy Days. Sacramental preparation for First Communion and First Reconciliation takes place in second grade and eighth graders are prepared for the Sacrament of Confirmation.
