Our Lady School has a diverse, challenging, Christ-centered curriculum, which aims to foster a positive self-concept within each student as well as a desire to learn. The curriculum addresses the needs of the students from a holistic viewpoint, which includes spiritual, moral, intellectual, aesthetic, social, and physical dimensions. It is designed to instill a spirit of inquiry and creativity in each of the students.

As students progress through Our Lady School, they are guided to become increasingly more self-motivated and independent. Students are encouraged to evaluate the relative merits of ideas and to accept personal responsibility for learning. Homework and classroom preparation is a student responsibility.
