Welcome to olla.org!
It is with bobcat pride and gratitude that I invite you to learn about our school, its offerings and its accomplishments by touring our Web site. Our Lady of Lourdes Academy is a high school of the Archdiocese of Miami, having the distinction of being its only all-girls high school. For over 50 years, the mission of this school has been “to educate young women to face the future strengthened by their faith, prepared and confident in their abilities to achieve their goals and committed to their Catholic and American heritages.”
Our motto, “With Mary in all things,” sets the tone for our mission. Besides providing a rigorous academic curriculum, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy strives to create a vibrant, faith-filled, caring community, endeavoring to make all feel welcomed and accepted by imitating the attributes of the Blessed Mother. Growth in the spiritual life is supported by a strong Theology program, a committed Campus Ministry Program and a focus on prayer and the sacraments. Mass is offered each morning in our school chapel. In addition, the school community prays the Morning Offering to start the day, the Angelus at noontime, and the Memorare at the close of the day.
A strong academic curriculum including numerous AP courses and Dual Enrollment courses, an excellent sports program, varied clubs and activities, and a focus on leadership and service contribute to the formation of young women who graduate prepared for further academic pursuits and committed to serving their Church and community, at large.
Our campus has grown and changed significantly during the last several years, most noticeably with the addition of a classroom building, the opening of a long-awaited gym, and the renovation of the front area of the original campus.
Graduates of Our Lady of Lourdes Academy have influenced our local communities, since the school’s inception. The poise, confidence and commitment of a “Lourdes girl” is evident. Thus, Our Lady of Lourdes Academy provides a family atmosphere where young women can grow into faith-filled competent women.
Thank you for your interest in our school. Please be sure to contact us if you would like to learn more about us.
With Mary in All Things,
Sister Kathryn Donzé, IHM
