The OLC School
The mission of Our Lady of Czestochowa (The OLC School) is to create a learning environment that encourages each child to grow as a spiritual, moral and intellectual individual, who will be able to embrace a global multicultural society of the 21st century.
As a Catholic school in a diverse community, we strive to develop virtues and values that foster the expression of a child’s potential. We encourage life-long learning and creative problem solving by providing a challenging and stimulating academic curriculum, while also allowing consideration for individual interests, abilities and needs.
The philosophy of Catholic education is to provide for the academic growth and development of the whole child while meeting the needs of the individual, with an atmosphere centered on Christ. A child’s beliefs, attitudes, values and behavioral patterns are developed primarily by his/her parents, who are the child’s first educators. The purpose of a Catholic school is to reaffirm and enhance the values taught at home. The OLC School aims to provide the child with a climate where faith, trust, and love for God and others is encouraged, lived, and witnessed in his/her life.
