Philosophy and Objectives
Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Academy (OLQMCA), a Catholic, parochial, coeducational school, seeks to provide a quality education by assisting in the creative formation of the whole child. Students are invited to share and nurture a love for learning. OLQMCA strives to foster mutual respect and peace that flows from proclamation of the gospel message in an educational setting.
Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Academy believes that Jesus Christ is the core of our existence. We endeavor to teach as Jesus taught, through providing an educational program rich in spiritual, as well as academic growth. It is our belief that Jesus Christ is ever present in our classrooms, fostering Christian growth through word, worship, community, and service. Each student is encouraged to explore his or her own strengths and challenges through varied instructional methodology.
Our knowledge of both student and community fosters an environment that recognizes the varied cultures and customs of each individual. Through the various methods employed throughout the school, we strive to cultivate a nurturing environment in which our students feel safe, secure, and free to express their individual talents. We endeavor to educate the whole child, and to prepare them not only for their immediate future, but to provide them with the skills necessary for long term success.
OLQMCA Stresses Religious Education
The student body is provided opportunities to participate in the celebration of the Eucharist, Penance Services and Para-Liturgical experiences throughout the course of the school year. School families are encouraged to attend weekend Masses. Special Sacrament Programs are conducted for parents and students in preparation for the reception of Holy Eucharist, Reconciliation and Confirmation. Some classes are visited by a priest on a regular basis.
