Our Lady of the Pillar Academy is a small, well-established, faith-based, independent elementary school operating near Strathroy, Ontario. We are a not-for-profit institution that enjoys charitable, tax status. We recognize and support parents as the primary educators of their children. We provide a rich, Catholic educational experience and a classically-inspired curriculum so that our students can achieve their intellectual and spiritual potential. While tuition based, we offer new families a 50% discount on initial tuition. We will be operating 5 days a week and offering busing to students living generally, within an 80 km radius. We are pleased to be now accepting student applications (JK-8) for classes beginning September 8th. Since the previous school year just ended, OLPA has already experienced a 30% increase in enrolled students this fall making the following enrollment message timely:
In order for OLPA to continue to provide our classically-inspired curriculum and to meet the public health department recommendations to protect our students from the potential risks due to COVID-19, we are placing a deadline, or rather a ceiling on the number of our enrolled students at 50. We value the benefit of our rural location; the small class sizes we enjoy and the good work habits and friendships that small classes tend to foster. If you wish for your child/ren to experience ‘everything that is good and true and beautiful’ in a terrific faith-based environment, consider OLPA and review what we have to offer; but do so quickly, our enrollment numbers are growing fast!
