Hear OLL parent share "why OLL" at Catholic Schools Week Mass 2022
"My children’s teachers were fully invested in academic and social/emotional outcomes. My children could feel this and gave their best effort because they knew how much their teachers cared about them. We have found OLL to be an academically rigorous, civically minded, and very caring community. We love the school! We could not be happier at OLL."
- Kelli H., OLL School Parent
"OLL has been instrumental in my daughter's growth as a student and a human!  We appreciated all the support of our wonderful OLL community."
