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. Our community lives this mission every day. OLA Catholic School is over 67 years strong, and we are blessed with a very special community, a devoted parish, and a rich history.
While our commitment and ability to provide the very best Catholic education for our students has never wavered, in some cases our facilities have not kept pace. With the blessing of Archbishop Wilton Gregory, we are excited to embark on the BUILDING TOGETHER capital campaign to expand and enhance our campus. These needed expansions and enhancements will allow us to continue to provide an enriching faith-based education, while keeping pace with the requirements of a twenty-first century education.
We are humbled by the support of the many parents, grandparents, alumni, faculty and parishioners who have answered the call to give to our school. Through the generosity of our OLA community, we have raised $4.5 million. This has given us the confidence to proceed with construction of the full $6 million master plan this summer.
We will continue raising the remaining $1.5 million until our goal is reached. If you have not yet given to the BUILDING TOGETHER campaign, we invite you to prayerfully consider a pledge to the capital campaign that is personally meaningful to you here. Gifts are tax deductible, and can be paid in installments over the next five years.
