AREAS OF LEARNING
Intended to expose students to our fundamental Catholic teachings, language, math, motor skills, art, music, and technology by focusing on these key areas:
LEADER IN ME
OLGC is proud to be a Leader in Me school. Leader in Me is designed to help students both in and out of the classroom as they learn the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. Through these habits, which tie in easily with our Catholic virtues, students build skill sets to become leaders in their daily lives, which will in turn form them into leaders in their communities and beyond.
