    Discover excellence at Our Lady of Guadalupe Academy

    The Academy offers an academic curriculum that is rich in religious formation and the moral values your child will need to form the relationships that are necessary to succeed in life. With low teacher-student ratios and plenty of personal attention, the Academy creates an atmosphere of deep respect in an encouraging environment that challenges bright minds to explore their interests leading them to discover the duties that they have to themselves, their classmates and the world.

    At the very foundation of the education we offer is a dedication to excellence. That’s why our Catholic schools students consistently score higher on nationally standardized testing than public or charter school counterparts. They have gone on to succeed at academic competitions and at least 97% of our graduates eventually go on to attend college after studying at some of the area’s finest private high schools.
