OLSS parents, students, faculty and staff provide a strong Catholic Christian community as the platform from which all learning takes place. This community recognizes the importance of all its members as teachers and models of Christian education and develops students to take their places in society with strong Christian values. Students pursue academic excellence within their individual potential and are guided to make decisions grounded in their Catholic Faith. OLSS supports and follows the Second Vatican Council's Declaration on Christian Education as well as the teaching of our US Bishops which is grounded in the last 125 years of Church teacing on Catholic education. This mission is evident in all curriculum areas, central to all instruction, and is the focus of our Religion curriculum. Current programs, initiatives and components of campus ministry that foster and promote our Catholic Identity are accessiable from the menu on the left.
