The Academy of Our Lady of Peace

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP) is a rigorous college preparatory school with an unparalleled leadership program and a variety of co-curricular activities. For 138 years, we have been educating young women in the spirit of excellence and innovation that characterizes our founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. We follow in the footsteps of many a brilliant and dedicated educator who established a holistic view of education that included the mind, body, and spirit. In that, we follow the mission to engender a collaborative worldview in the tradition of the Gospels.

Additionally, OLP has been recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. You will find, here at OLP, a community who is proud of its rich history and is committed to outstanding achievement.
