The Academy of our Lady of Peace has been home to my daughter for the last four years! She has grown into a confident, intelligent and caring individual! She has had excellent teachers, counselor, and supportive coaches! The rigor of the school has prepared her for college. The all girls environment has allowed her to be herself and become a leader.
We have loved all the special traditions the school has. The Catholic faith is seen throughout all aspects of the school community.
Overall we are extremely happy with the school and would make the same choice again. Thank you OLP for your love and acceptance!

If you are looking for a nurturing, Catholic school for your daughter, OLP is an amazing choice.

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace is an environment that draws on sisterhood, developing innovative leaders, and service for the dear neighbor. Each class that I have taken has never failed to foster intellectual curiosity and always works to prompt critical thinking. The teachers here aren't just there to teach, but to help their students grow as individuals and to help us become leaders, visionaries, and leaders. The inclusive community at the Academy will be one that I will never forget. I know that the friendships I've developed will last a lifetime!
An excellent school which will certainly prepare your daughter for academic success. My ONLY critique of the school is that while it proclaims diversity, it has VERY LITTLE diversity of thought. It is EXTREMELY LIBERAL.

The History/Gov classes are pure political indoctrination, urging the girls to be Socialist/Democrat voters. And many other classes (Literature, Religion) are fully based on the Social Justice (anti-capitalist/military/US/male) perspective.

OLP must foster thought diversity and critical thinking by encouraging balanced dialogues to prepare our next generation of leaders. It should recognize that conservative views are still are validly held by some students (and should be discussed and debated in polite discourse).
