Big Things Happen At The Little School In The Woods
Nestled in the Oak Openings region Lial Catholic School has been educating children, Pre-K through 8th since 1972. There is no other school like Lial. It is a beautiful blend of traditional and Montessori practices with faith at the center of everything we do. A day would not be complete without leaf pile jumping, sledding down the meadow hill, or building forts in the woods.
At Lial, prayer and play go hand in hand. You won't find a single desk inside Lial classrooms. Instead, community tables are used to promote genuine conversations and collaboration among peers. Learning is an on-going process. Lial's multi-age classrooms allow students to move through the curriculum at his or her own pace growing in self-confidence as they do so.
United in partnership with our parents Lial helps children grow into the people God intends them to be. We invite you to join our family.
Readiness Enrichment Program
This program complements the established excellence of our Readiness room while meeting the needs of families desiring an all-day option. Enrichment students have opportunities for hands-on learning, dramatic play, and plenty of outdoor play. Little boots in the hallway are evidence of daily exploration of Lial's nature trails. Each adventure ends with nature coming back to the classroom.
