OLPH Academy At-A-Glance

SPIRITUAL & ACADEMIC DEVELOPMENT

Our Lady of Perpetual Help Academy provides a Christ centered education to students from Pk2 through 8th grade. Academic excellence and spiritual development of the child is our hallmark. The Office of Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Corpus Christi has developed curriculum guides that identify standards of academic rigor. We use these guides in addition to state standards to determine what we want our students to know at the end of each grade level. Our students are provided a variety of opportunities to grow in our Catholic faith everyday and are expected to challenge themselves to meet academic expectations. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Academy is accredited by the Texas Catholic Conference of Bishops (TCCB).
