Choosing a Catholic Education

The world changes rapidly.  The challenges this generation will face are far different and more complex that those of years past.  Cultivating moral character and strong catholic values are more important now than ever. Families that consider Catholic school know that the values that they instill in their home will be taught and lived at school.  It is these values that build strong moral character, deepen their relationship with Jesus Christ and connect a child’s faith to their daily lives.  Catholic schools instill a self-confidence and self-worth that will enable our students to make better choices and develop into positive leaders of the future.

As a parent, you always want what’s best for your child.  As a school we will always strive for academic excellence.  As a Catholic school we will not only educate the mind, we nurture the soul.  A Catholic school couples superior academics with strong Catholic values and morals.

A Catholic school is designed to make a difference in the life of every student.

Anyone who knows a Catholic school teacher knows it’s more a “calling” than it is a “job.” Yes, a quality education is important and that takes great teachers but Catholic school teachers know that quality education occurs when an environment is safe, stable and caring.  Where each child is taught to respect themselves and others and where that child is never lost in the crowd.

A Catholic school is an extension of your family. The students of Our Lady of Wisdom are nurtured and supported in a smaller learning community.  We welcome you to explore what the OLOW family has to offer your family.

The statistics provided by NCEA (National Catholic Education Association) or LI Catholic Elementary Schools provide a strong background on the success of a Catholic education.  Listen to what parents have to say in "Parents Speak Out" or a "A Parents Perspective" regarding their decisions to chose a Catholic Education for their child.  Their reasons might surprise you!
