My granddaughter is learning so much! She's getting an amazing education.

The community spirit is wonderful. I've never heard of any bullying at "our" school. All of the students show support for each others activities...from pre-school through middle school.

My child is happier at OLA than ever in our first year here in Middle school. The curriculum is strong in both content and support setting high expectations for the students without overwhelming them. It has a great community feel. The staff is very interested in the success of the students.

What a Christian environment based on values, love and devotion for not only teaching our children how to talk the talk but walk the walk. Not only is OLA a safe place for our children but a wonderful start on life, learning so much and utilizing these skills in day to day life. The teachers and staff represent an educational committment to our children that is unsurpassed by many in today's growing society. God leads in this school and it shows!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
