Our Lady of the Hills is a 9-12 college preparatory high school enrolling all qualified students without regard to race, creed, color, gender, religion, or economic status. Students are accepted on the basis of their previous academic performance, recommendation of the Principal, promise for future development, and their desire to profit from the moral, spiritual, academic, and physical programs offered by the school
The program of studies extends for a period of four years for those entering as Freshmen. High School credit may be accepted for Algebra I and Spanish I for courses taught in Elementary/Middle school, however for a student to accelerate to the next sequence of classes as mandated by the curriculum, mastery of material in Algebra I and/or Spanish I must be demonstrated on a proficiency examination administered by OLH. On completion of the twelfth grade, the student is awarded a certificate of graduation, provided they have earned the required units of High School credit for an OLH diploma.
Credit by examination (credit for an academic subject in which the student has had no prior instruction) can be given if the student scores 90 % on a criterion-referenced test for the applicable course.
The courses offered at OLH are directed toward providing the student with a well-rounded preparation for college and for life. It is our belief at OLH that a student’s success is not only measured academically but also in the way he/she presents and conducts himself/herself. OLH seeks to instill in all students self-confidence, maturity and intellect. The administration of the school reserves the right to schedule the courses they consider most appropriate to the ability of the individual student. It is each student’s responsibility to see to it that he/she fulfills all requirements for graduation.
All student applicants must have satisfactorily completed the previous grade level. The applicant is accepted on the basis of his/her previous academic performance (grades and standardized test scores), recommendation of the Principal, promise of future development, and their desire to profit from the moral, spiritual, academic, and physical programs offered by the school. In some cases, a personal interview with the applicant and his/her parents is required. An application for admission must be completed and filed with the school. All applicants for ninth grade admission must take the High School Placement Test (H.S.P.T.) as a requirement for admission. OLH admits students without regard to race, creed, color, gender, or national origin. As a general rule, no student will be allowed to repeat a grade level upon entering OLH. Dual enrollment with non-accredited schools is not allowed. Admission of students from foreign schools must be determined by the principal.
Transfer Student Admission
A transfer student may be required to take an entrance examination. The applicant must request an official transcript of credits from the sending school last attended. Course credits received will be based on the official transcript from the previous school. No transfer student will be allowed to repeat a grade level upon entering OLH.
