    My time at OLP was magical if it had not been for the inspiration of our French teacher, I would have never fulfilled my dream of studying and living in Paris, France. The language prep I received at OLP more than prepared me for the level of study at university on into my days living in Paris.

  • For FaithPoised

    If it werent for the religious education and campus ministry experience I received at OLP, I would not be working in full-time youth/music ministry today. Because I had teachers who cared so much about our faith and the love of Christ, I am able to continue that work with my youth group and have passed the Gospel on to many teens over the past ten years.

  • Founded by the Sisters of Saint Joseph of Carondelet in 1882, OLP has successfully educated young women for more than 130 years to meet the needs of society, always with the charism of the sisters at heart: gentleness, peace and joy. OLP is rooted in the motto of Deus Illuminatio Mea, God is my Light.

    Not only do we provide an educational experience that produces students with a very strong academic foundation, but we also continually emphasize the importance of developing a strong, balanced faith-life with a focus on Catholic social justice. We take in young girls. We graduate well-rounded, exceptionally motivated, and spiritually-conscious young women.
