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

A Letter from Our Principal
Welcome to Our Lady of the Assumption Catholic School! We hope as you explore our website you not only learn what makes OLA special but could find a home for your student.
OLA is more than just a Catholic school. It is a thriving community of families that embrace our mission to educate the whole child in the Catholic faith. We maintain high standards and provide a rigorous curriculum, based on 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 such 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 in 1951, 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 twice designated as a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education and are fully accredited by Cognia through district-wide accreditation as part of the Archdiocese of Atlanta.
Located in Brookhaven, Georgia, our school serves students from over 20 Catholic parishes.
