Our Lady of Grace (OLG) is a private, co-educational, Catholic School welcoming students from Kindergarten through eighth grade. A three-time recognized National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, Our Lady of Grace is an exemplary educational experience - nurturing and expanding the hearts, minds, and souls of students since opening its doors in 1949. Families are drawn to OLG and its community of learning, inclusion and faith, grounded in a motto of 'Leading with Yes' - saying yes to personal excellence, reaching beyond ourselves, and the call to share God's love.

Students thrive under a faculty committed to continuous improvement through ongoing professional development. The OLG staff is dedicated to their craft, collaborating across grade levels and subject areas to provide a rigorous curriculum, promoting growth, with attention to the individual.

In 2006, OLG began its One-to-One Laptop Learning Program with a focus on digital literacy, creative collaboration, and inventive thinking. In 2009 and 2010, OLG was selected as an Apple Exemplary Program for illustrating best practices of a 21st century learning environment. Today, technology is integrated into every classroom, a one-to-one technology initiative and a STEM curriculum bridging the entire student population.

OLG stands on the shoulders of generations of families, parishioners, students, faculty, and staff who have made it the extraordinary Catholic educational institution that it is today. At OLG, students grow in faith, virtue, and character. Graduates go on to excel in high school, college, and beyond - with a strong foundation of integrity fostered and realized while at OLG.
