Sunday School / Catechism:

 Though not part of the Academy, the Sunday School program is an important part of the life of Our Lady of Sorrows. It provides all the children of the faithful - those who attend the Academy, and those who don't - a unified preparation for the sacraments and a traditional Catholic education, whether supplementary or vital!​​

Classes take place most school year Sundays at 9am.

Providing a traditional Catholic education from Kindergarten - 12th Grade 

OLOS Academy provides children with a thorough Catholic education founded upon

traditional principles. The school strives ultimately to form good Catholic citizens, men

and women willing and able to work for the restoration of all things in Christ, freely

submitting to the reign of Our Lord in the spiritual, moral, intellectual, and physical realms.

The Catholic school exists to cultivate a soil in which the faith and the love of God might

grow. The teachers at OLOS Academy serve this end by helping form, in the child, lasting

qualities of the mind and heart through exposure to the true, the good and the beautiful

across the entire curriculum. In the study of literature and the humanities, they reveal to

the child the nobility of the human soul, which is ever thirsting for the absolute, and all

their effort as teachers is to awaken this same thirst in the child’s own soul. Throughout the

various disciplines, they draw the child to rectify and strengthen his natural faculties in

harmony with his created good so that he might have the desire and the strength to embrace,

freely and with confidence, the supreme Good, God Himself.

Learning is a profoundly human process, one best accomplished through patient, qualitative

drawing out, rather than a mechanistic, quantitative filling up. Although the school will strive

continuously to provide teachers and students with the best possible tools and resources in

terms of texts and an integrated curriculum, it will be the obvious love which the teacher has

for the subject matter, his mastery of it, and his talent in communicating that knowledge and love,

which will spark a fire in the children, fostering in them a lifelong love of learning.
