    ACADEMY OF OUR LADY OF PEACE

    Our Mission StatementThe Academy of Our Lady of Peace is a Catholic, liberal arts oriented, college preparatory secondary school dedicated to the education of young women. As a Catholic school, it is committed to helping its students become active participants in building Christs kingdom of justice, love and peace. As a school rooted in the values of the Sisters of St. Joseph, it promotes the cultivation of gentleness, peace and joy as we respond to the needs of the dear neighbor both in our midst and in our human community. Through its college preparatory program, its mission is to empower its students to become knowledgeable in those skills needed to achieve success in post-secondary studies, and to make informed and values-driven decisions in the context of todays world. As a result of these endeavors, and working with parents as our educational partners providing a family context of faith-in-action, the Academy of Our Lady of Peace strives to graduate responsible women educated to the needs of society.

    The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP) is a Catholic, college preparatory secondary school dedicated to the education of young women. For more than 132 years, OLP academic tenets have remained grounded in the spirit of excellence and innovation characterizing the founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. OLPs rigorous curriculum reflects a tradition of self-improvement and empowerment and embraces 21st Century readiness for

    the future. The result of these endeavors combined with parents as the educational partners provides a context of faith-in-action family partnership.

    Through academic, social and spiritual learning experiences, OLP strives to develop women who will act as changemakers in our global society, committed in their dedication to serve, without distinction, the dear neighbor.

    Our Strategic Planning Process

    For more than 130 years OLP has educated young

    women to excel in college and beyond, grounded

    in the Catholic faith and exemplifying the qualities

    of the CSJ tradition. Significant changes in the

    world, in the San Diego community, and at OLP

    itself, prompted the development of a strategic

    planning process to collectively study the schools

    history, examine its current status, identify its

    strengths and opportunities for growth, and create

    guideposts for achieving its full potential.

    For a six-month time span between summer and

    winter of 2014 to 2015, the OLP community was

    engaged in a strategic planning process virtually

    all stakeholders were invited to participate. Five

    compelling strategic priorities emerged through

    the guidance of the Strategic Planning Task

    Force, school leadership, Board of Directors and

    Netzel Grigsby Associates Inc., strategic planning

    consultants.

    The purpose of this Strategic Plan is to provide the

    Academy of Our Lady of Peace with a road map for

    its development over the next three to five years.
