Our Lady of Peace School Is Making Its Mark
WHEELING — The theme for Our Lady of Peace School this year is “Make Your Mark.” The beautiful hilltop school in Mount Olivet is grounded in merit, commitment, and faith. At Our Lady of Peace, these words embody more than lessons taught, but action taken.
The school is focusing on MAKING A MARK on the world as they are guided through the Ten Commandments with their pastor the Rev. Douglas A. Ondeck each weekday school Mass.
“Whether we make our mark through our faith, academics, athletics, or service, we strive in all we do to be children of Christ and to follow in His footsteps,” said Principal Maureen Kerr. “The Ten Commandments are universal for all of us. If we make every effort to open our minds and hearts to them we are set for success in life.”
Our Lady of Peace School is a three time national award winner for Innovations in Catholic Education (ICE) in the areas of curriculum and instruction; technology integration; Catholic identity and total community involvement.
“We enrich our students from age 3 to eighth grade, so they become the best version of themselves,” said Principal Maureen Kerr. “Our students are guided by their teachers to discover their own passion for learning as they explore opportunities and challenges before them. We Make Our Mark at OLP, making a positive difference in the classroom, on the athletic fields, in our church and in the community!”
You are invited to check the school out for yourself. The office is now scheduling shadowing days for students and parent tours. Registration for the 2017-2018 school year begins in February.
Until you experience OLP you do not know what your family is missing, said Arley and Sherry Collett of Glen Dale, who have three children at the school.
“No matter how eloquently you try to put into words how impressive Our Lady of Peace School is, you cannot fully describe it to give it justice,” Sherry Collett said. “It’s definitely a special place. We are so happy to be part of the Our Lady of Peace School family.”
Our Lady of Peace does more than prepare students for high school.
It does more than prepare students with the work ethic to succeed in college.
“An education at Our Lady of Peace goes beyond the classroom, pushing past the limits of your imagination and through the depths of the soul,” Kerr said. “We have been leading in faith and knowledge for more than 50 years. Our Lady of Peace prepares our students for eternity!”
