Our Lady of the Assumption

Catholic School

“What kind of work can be more noble than to cultivate the minds of young people,

guarding it carefully, so that the knowledge and love of God and His holy precepts go

hand-in-hand with learning? To form young Christians and citizens — isn’t this the most beautiful and

noble-minded way to make use of life, of all one’s talents and energy?” 


– St. John Cantius

Faith, Knowledge, Service, Community
Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School seeks to create a nurturing environment grounded in the Catholic faith, which provides for the spiritual and academic development of each child.

A Letter from Our Principal

Since 1951 when the school opened its doors, OLA Catholic School has demonstrated a passion for learning.  The school exists to teach and to engender the beliefs and practices of the Roman Catholic Church.  In keeping with the tradition of Catholic schools, Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School seeks to create a nurturing environment which provides for the spiritual and academic development of each child.

Students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators demonstrate a passion for the mission, and the viability of the mission is apparent through its incorporation into the daily life of the school.  We believe that school is not only a vehicle for basic studies but also offers an opportunity to encourage critical thinking, Christian leadership, and civic responsibility.  From its beginning, the Sisters of Mercy instilled into the school community the importance of social justice and service.  These fundamentals remain paramount today at OLA.  Students are actively involved in supporting other local Catholic schools, feeding the homeless and hungry, providing for immigrants, and caring for those abroad.

 

As an Archdiocese of Atlanta parish school, Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School is proud to be part of the network of Catholic schools in the Atlanta area.  We provide an exceptional, challenging PK-eighth grade curriculum that is dedicated to the success of all students.  We have been designated as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education and are fully accredited by AdvancED through district-wide accreditation as part of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.

 

Located in Brookhaven, Georgia, our school serves students from over 20 Catholic parishes.
