National Junior Honor Society:
OLPH Academy was granted a Charter on July 2009 and therefore, this chapter is based on the National Honor Society Guideline. The purpose of NJHS is to create enthusiasm for scholarship, to stimulate a desire to render service, to promote leadership, to develop character, and to encourage citizenship. The School’s constitution and guidelines may be found with one of the sponsors, Mrs. Iliana Ortiz.
South Texas Christian Schools Speech Meet:
Students, in grades 1-8, have the opportunity to develop their public speaking skills and compete at the South Texas Christian Schools Speech Meet. To qualify: each student will be required to choose a selection from an official list. He/she will be expected to memorize the selection (from one category only), then present their speech in class. Categories include Bible Memory, Poetry, Dramatic Interpretation, Patriotic Recitation, etc.
At least one student, from each class, will qualify to represent OLPH Academy and compete in the South Texas Christian Schools Speech Meet. The big event, with competitors from area Christian schools, is scheduled on March 3, 2018.
