If you seek a school that blends Catholic Values and Academic Excellence in a Parish School Setting, we invite you to visit and see for yourself what makes OMC such a special place.

We looked at a wide range of schools, including a number of private schools. While they offered the academic education we were looking for, they lacked a true sense of community for both our child and our family. At OMC we found a strong and thriving school that offers both a rigorous academic curriculum and the sense of community and service that provides an education in becoming a person of character and morals.

– Eric and Anna Fontenot, OMC Parents

We wanted a parish school. My wife and I had both attended our parish schools growing up and had fantastic experiences. We considered other schools in the area but they weren’t the parish school… they felt disconnected somehow.

– Peter and Colleen Amuso, OMC Parents

As a parish school, we provide the unique opportunity for our students to be fully involved in the life of the parish as they pursue their elementary education. Under the leadership of our Principal, Mr. Bruce Hagy, and our faith-filled faculty, our parish school provides an environment that allows for the academic, spiritual and moral development of each child. In addition, our school is blessed by the presence of two Religious Communities, the Oblates of St. Francis de Sales and the Sister of St. Joseph, who share their spiritual traditions with the faculty, staff, and students.

– Father Bob Bazzoli, Pastor

OMC is a very special place where parents, teachers, clergy, staff, and administrators work together to prepare our children to be effective learners, grow in the Catholic faith, and become kind, generous, and compassionate young men and women.

– Louise and Mark Jakubik, OMC Parents

I’m impressed by the seriousness of the students and the level of support that we get from the parents and the administration. This is the type of school where you go from one class to another and see that every one is on the same page.

– Richard Leonard, OMC Teacher

I was looking for a warm friendly atmosphere, more one-on-one attention, a smaller school where my kids wouldn’t get lost in the shuffle.

– Sandy Hall, OMC Parent

The teachers, the aids, Bruce (Hagy), Sue (Lasek) make you feel that your child is the only child in the school. They give that kind of personal loving attention.
