Student Life

Learning is at the heart of the student experience at OLQA. Our experienced and committed teachers set high standards—and support students to reach them every day.

  • Rigorous Core Curriculum

    Academic life at OLQA begins with its curriculum which follows Common Core and New York state standards. We stress mastery of reading, writing, mathematics, science and social studies, and work closely with each student to meet these expectations. In addition, all students take religion courses that strengthen their faith.

  • Extended Academic Day

    For our students in grades 1 through 8, the academic day runs from 8 am to 4 pm.  Extended periods for reading and math every day in all grades facilitate mastery of the core subjects.

  • Early Childhood Program

    For OLQA’s youngest learners in Pre-K and Kindergarten, the school day runs from 8 am to 2:30 pm. Our center-based early childhood classrooms are designed to encourage independence, exploration and the application of new learned concepts and skills.
