Classroom Orientation and Back to School Mass

photo_5Come join us on Sunday, September 7th for a morning of welcoming and prayer.

Our Back to School masses for all families will be held at 9 a.m. in English and at 10:30 a.m. in Spanish.

Classroom Orientations for 1st-8th grades will take place from 10-10:30 a.m. You will have an opportunity to meet your children's teachers, see their classrooms, and discover what they will learn this year during two, fifteen minute sessions. The orientations will take place for 1st-8th grades only since our PK and Kindergarten classrooms held their sessions in August.

We can't wait to show off all of the great things we have in store for this year. We hope to see you there!



OLC Exceeds Enrollment Goal


The new school year has gotten off to an excellent start. It has been wonderful to see familiar faces in addition to the many new ones who have joined us this school year.

We are excited to report that we have 336 students for the 2014-2015 school year. Through the efforts of the entire school community, we have increased enrollment from the 310 students who attended OLC last year and 287 students the year prior to that. In fact, since 2009, we have increased enrollment by 100%! We now have three full pre-school classrooms, two Kindergartens, two 1st grades, and two 2nd grades. It is clear that many families have discovered the excellent educational and spiritual opportunities available at Our Lady of Charity.

We look forward to another successful year of educating our saints and scholars.

Back to School!
