Academics

The mission of Our Lady of Wisdom Regional Catholic School is to ensure that each student receives the highest quality Catholic education.  The knowledge and skills our students gain through technology and critical thinking inspire them to recognize the need to pursue high standards.  This allows them to achieve personal excellence and success while becoming lifelong learners.  Our administration and faculty are dedicated to lead each student through a personal journey of faith and education, encouraging all students to reach their God-given potential.

 

Small Class Size
Our 12:1 student:teacher ratio provides for greater individual attention to each student.  Studies in states throughout the country have demonstrated that students who are assigned to smaller classes in elementary school do better in every way!

  • They score higher on tests
  • They receive better grades
  • They exhibit improved attendance

 
Knowledgeable Teachers
