21 Parent Reviews for Academy Of Our Lady Of Peace
I am entering my senior year at AOLP and I've loved all three previous years! I feel that it is so important for a young woman to have a supportive and loving academic community surrounding her in these four formative years of high school. That community at OLP has helped me blossom into a respectful,
... Read more aware, and well-rounded young woman. I feel so prepared for college with the constant burden of taking notes, writing essays, and thinking critically. The English Department perpetually challenges each and every student to better her writing skills and the Science Department tries to engage each student as well. The only complaint I have about this wonderful school is that they require eight semesters of religion classes and, while most are very fulfilling, some try to push Catholic dogma a little too hard, which ends up driving some girls away. However, I have never been Catholic and never will be, but I have learned to appreciate the beauty and love that all of the religion teachers (and teachers in general) share with the girls. OLP is truly a large family and I can hardly express how much my high school experience has shaped me into a woman of peace, faith, and confidence. Read less

I will be going into my sophmore year and I can't wait, my freshman year has been amazing! The teachers are great and they actually take the time to help you, even if it is during their break. The guidance counselors are amazing as well! I was having trouble in a class and I was a little hesitant on

My daughter was a transfer from another high school. She is SO HAPPY here, This is an academically challenging school, butgirls who struggle but are willing to work hard will succeed as well thanks to the caring teachers. I cannot believe how available the teachers are for the students and the parents
... Read more compared to another Catholic high school where the teachers are out of the parking lot 5 mintues after the last bell. No cliques here, there is a place for every girl and while there are wealthy girls as well as financial scholarship students, there is no social separation based upon financial means (unlike the 'other' Catholic high school). Your daughter will be taught to think for herself, explore her possiblities, celebrate her strengths and accept her weaknesses and most of all become an independent young woman. Having experience elsewhere, I can wholeheartedly recommend this school for young ladies who will learn the tools to be successful no matter what life path they take. Your daughter will love it here guaranteed!! Read less

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace presents amazing oppurtunites for our daughters to build their future. The environment is unlike anything I have ever seen before; my daughter has told me on numerous occasions that she loves how she does not have to worry about cliques, or popularity contests, unlike
... Read more her friends at other schools. OLP is a nurturing environment which encourages girls to express themselves in the classroom, as well as through sports and theatre programs. It is no doubt that the academics offered at the Academy are of the highest caliber; no other school I have heard of can compare. And the most recent graduates of OLP, who are now at Harvard, Yale, Columbia, and Notre Dame among other universities, only illustrate that fact. Read less

As a current student of OLP, I am extremely proud to say that I am a member of the OLP sisterhood. Previous posts have said that this school is not for everyone, and that is true, but OLP clearly states this fact, so it should in no way be held against the school. Recently, OLP has been racked with
... Read more trouble regarding its relations with the neighbors, but even this problem does degrade the high academic quality that OLP offers. I had always wanted to go to OLP, and upon arriving, found it extremely difficult. But after getting 'in the groove' I know am confident in myself as scholar and a young woman. I know that because of my OLP education, I will be more than prepared for college and life beyond. Read less

I was definitely forced to go to this school and honestly didn't see how amazing it was for a couple years. I think that the decision my parents made to send me here helped me become the person I am. Without this school I honestly do not know where I would be today. I had a lot of academic and 'fitting

Right before my senior year my father died and I was given the option to go to a public school. The school rallied around me and my family and made my senior year a lot easier than it would have been. I can't tell you how amazing this school is for young women; so much more than an education. Amazing. Read less

The greatest thing a parent could do is to send their child to a private school like OLP. I gained so much from this school, the faculty, and it's standards for excellence as well as made lasting friendships. OLP prepared me extremely well for college (my freshman year of college was actually easier

I am a former student of OlP and I can honestly say that it made me the person I am. I have lived in different countries and am living in Paris at the moment. People notice the qualities that OlP instilled in me. Of course there are natural rebelllions of adolesence, but OlP shapes their students into

I am all of 21 years old and I already know where I want to send my future dauhters to school! Sister Dolores and Sister Joyce will always hold a special place in my heart. Truly great women, and exeptional roll models. Read less
