New Student Registration Process
Step 1: Complete your registration.
Upon acceptance to OLL, you will receive registration information to officially enroll and confirm your child's place in that class. Complete the forms and pay the registration fee.
Step 2: Shop for school supplies.
We will send your summer welcome letter and school supply list in early summer.
Step 3: Attend the Ice Cream Social.
Be sure to save the date for our annual Ice Cream Social before school begins. This is your student's chance to see their classroom, drop off their school supplies, and connect with new and old friends.
Step 4: Meet your family mentor.
New families will be paired with an existing family to help welcome you into the community and answer all your burning questions. Be sure to connect with your mentor family over a dinner, play date, or coffee. Community is what makes our school special!
One of our core values at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School is our sense of community. We invite you to meet our teachers, students, and current school parents and learn more.
