Practical experience in Christian living is realized in the pastoral activities program through retreats, service projects and days of recollection, liturgies and other forms of personal spiritual formation. All students are offered an opportunity to reflect on their spiritual life and relationship with God.
The curriculum and extracurricular activities reflect the best of the Jesuit and Dominican orders and their philosophies of service to others. Our Lady of the Hills is committed to assist students to become mature in their faith, to become critical thinkers, and to challenge each student to develop his or her talents to the fullest. The theology program is academic in nature. Students are tested and graded on their ability to comprehend and assimilate information regarding doctrine, morality, Church history and practice. Every student is required to study theology.
Students are given the opportunity to think critically, examine attitudes, challenge assumptions, and analyze motives. All of this is important if students are to make decisions with the freedom that allows them to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus Christ.
The Our Lady of the Hills campus includes a chapel graciously made possible by Beverly Pevehouse. The chapel allows an all-school mass to be held on campus bi-monthy as well as on special occasions. In addition, the chapel is available daily to students, faculty, and staff for open prayer.
