Lower school at OLA is a time of discovery, creativity and learning. We seek to instill a love of learning that will follow our students throughout their lives. Our faculty members encourage curiosity and foster a nurturing environment where students feel comfortable to try and try again.
Students work independently and collaboratively to solve problems and make connections. We encourage students to develop talents and interests as they discover more about themselves and delve into new subject matter.
OLA educates the whole child and instills values that will help students become well-rounded adults. We teach the importance of making good choices, doing the right thing, honesty, kindness and respect. Students also participate in school-wide community service projects to promote the importance of giving back and provide leadership opportunities.
Discovery. Creativity. Learning.
