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.

    Lial Catholic School Reviews

    5 reviews

    My wife and I are on the waitlist and plan to enroll our daughter into pre-kindergarten in the fall of 2019.

    Anyone considering a private education needs to tour this school. It is very neat. There were at least 1 or 2 parents in every classroom that we visited. (You’ll never see that in a typical public school.). Lial loves parental participation and they try to create a family-like atmosphere. In fact, they limit the use of fluorescent lights in the classrooms and even call the rooms “family rooms.” The grades are also mixed together in a way similar to Montessori.

    We are very excited to join Lial!

    A child-centered school environment! Strong philosophy of meeting individual needs with gentleness while building confidence. Values and spirituality are infused throughout the curriculum. The best!
    My daughter has attended Lial for 5 years now. I had her on the waiting list at 18 months! We absolutely LOVE the school, teachers and atmosphere. Everyone is equal here and the people become family.
