Academics

The academic program is enriched by project-based learning, writing across the curriculum, and STREAM (Science/Technology/Religion/Engineering/Art/Math). Student learning is showcased during Family Open House in the fall and Family Art Gallery in the spring. Families also attend the Christmas program and Spring play. All are invited to the OLQP Science Fair.  The Private Schools Interscholastic Association district competition is usually in March while the state meet is usually in May. Additionally, students participate in Robotics, Learning Garden activities, and more.

Technology supports the academic program. Middle school students are 1:1 with Chromebooks, a class set of Chromebooks is available for all classes to use in the STREAM lab, and a shared set of Chromebooks is available for use in lower elementary. The Early Childhood classes have iPads available for student use. Each classroom is equipped with a set of computers for student use, an ITEACH interactive white board as well as document cameras. The STREAM Lab has 3D printers. The computer lab has a class set of computers. All students attend technology classes. The lab is available for teachers to use for class projects as well. Many resources are available to parents for use at home via the school’s online subscriptions. The resource and log in information is sent home annually.

The school library also supports the academic program. Students visit the library at least weekly to check out books. The library supports the use of the school’s Accelerated Reader program. Student achievement in reading is celebrated quarterly.
