I loved my time at Academy of Our Lady! The knowledgeable faculty cares about the students and their successes. College preparatory experiences are built into graduation requirements, so post-secondary readiness is ensured. The new campus is beautiful and allows for so many new experiences for students. I highly recommend this school!

Academy of Our Lady is an institution dedicated to ensuring the success of young ladies. Their faculty cares for each individual student and is more than happy to help when needed. The school's education prepares students for college as well as instill a strong sisterhood bond rooted in faith. The new campus is beautiful and is equipped with state-of-the-art equipment that allows students to be up-to-date with the latest technology. I am a proud student and highly recommend this school!
I have been attending the Academy of Our Lady for 3 years. Although I have my ups and downs, I can honestly say that this school upholds and abides by their mission of turning young girls into young women. Before coming to AOL, I did have an immature mindset and was not thinking about college as much as I did when I first set foot into this school. Because the Academy of Our Lady pushes me to become a better person academically, I have been accepted into three colleges (one of them being out of state). Also in my being here, I have been pushed to strengthen my relationship with God by participating in giving back to my community by working in places such as Second Harvest, Crossroads, ARC, etc. I would highly recommend this school to any girl with the willingness to push herself to become a better person academically and spiritually.
