STANDARDIZED TEST SCORES

HOME SCHOOL ASSOCIATION
At The Academy of Our Lady of Peace, family participation and involvement with our many programs is encouraged and appreciated. The Home School Association is the parent organization that supports the programs of the school through volunteer staffing and fundraising activities. Parents can volunteer in the library, computer room, and lunch room, to name a few. They can read at story time in the lower grades and serve as a class parent. Participation in fundraisers like our annual Tricky Tray and Walk-a-thon create a community where your child benefits by your presence and involvement.
Community Service and volunteerism go hand and hand with a Catholic education rooted in strong Christian values. At The Academy of Our Lady of Peace, we instill in the students the importance of service to their community with the hope that the spirit of community activism will remain a part of their lives throughout adulthood. Volunteerism builds character and self-esteem and is a terrific learning experience.
The Home School Association and the Student Council both sponsor activities throughout the school year providing opportunities for students, parents and families to become involved in community outreach.
