Mission Statement

Commended Scholars (1)Our Purpose

Our Lady of the Hills (OLH) is a regional co-educational Catholic high school, committed to providing a quality college preparatory education to students from all social, ethnic, and economic backgrounds within a caring, diverse Christian community which values the potential and dignity of every student. Central to this purpose is our belief that every child is a child of God and each student deserves the right to seek truth in Jesus Christ for the greater glory of God.

 

Philosophy

OLH is committed to providing an excellent academic, value-based education for the children of the Texas Hill Country. OLH is a Catholic community that merges Christian Living with academic goals. We hold the belief that we are created to know, love, and serve God. We work to instill knowledge of moral values in each student whose behavior reflects a respect for the dignity of all God’s creation.

As a college-preparatory school, OLH provides an educational environment that addresses the development of the whole person. The curriculum addresses a broad range of content areas across disciplines relevant to the educational and personal development of each student.

 

Objectives of Our Lady of the Hills

  1. To develop in the student both an attitude of openness to growth and an acceptance of personal responsibility
  2. To prepare the student to be intellectually competent
  3. To help the student to become mature in his/her faith
  4. To guide the student to grow as a loving person
  5. To foster in the student a commitment to support justice

The influence of the school on student’s growth is limited. Other influences such as family, friends, the youth culture, and the general environment in which the students lives also affects their growth. OLH acknowledges that parents are the primary educators who share with the school the responsibility for education. We believe that the teacher’s role is to facilitate learning by challenging each student in a supportive environment to reach his/her potential.
