Our Philosophy

At the center of our efforts is the Catholic understanding that each human person is created in Divine love, in the image of God. We are made to know, love, and serve Him in this world and to be happy with Him forever in the next.

Catholic classical education unites faith, reason, and love to this end. At Our Lady of the Lake, the content of our curriculum and the methods of instruction are designed to provide formation in wisdom and virtue. We help children discover the unity of truth, goodness, and beauty, which are reflections of God. Thus, true education in the fullest sense goes far beyond the acquisition of skills or preparation for a career.
