Our Lady of Fatima School is a Catholic school of the Diocese of Pittsburgh. Our school’s mission, philosophy and vision are rooted in the teachings of Jesus and the Roman Catholic Church. Jesus Christ is ever-present in all our classes and instruction; the model for our faculty and staff, and the inspiration and hope for our students. We serve children in many school districts; including and not limited to Hopewell, Aliquippa, Beaver, Central Valley, South Side, Ambridge, Moon, Midland, and West Allegheny.
Our Lady of Fatima School was granted the highest level of accreditation possible through the Middle States Accreditation program.This self-study process provides an opportunity for our school to reflect on how well we are fulfilling our mission as an institution of education as outlined by the accreditation standards put forth by the Middle States Committee. As a result of this endeavor, we anticipate being stronger and better equipped to meet the challenges and opportunities of our students.
Staff members are highly qualified. All full-time faculty holds a Bachelor’s degree or Master’s degree, Lay Ministry Formation Certification, and are fully Pennsylvania credentialed. Our faculty has an average of 15years teaching experience, and many have served the school for 10 years or more. Our faculty and staff are very dedicated to Catholic education and are very active in maintaining a Christ centered classroom.
Our Lady of Fatima has a proud tradition of having 100% of its graduates who applied to Catholic high schools be accepted and many being placed in advanced programs. Our alumni earn many academic and sports scholarships and represent our school well in their post-secondary education endeavors. But no matter where they go, they always have a home here at OLOF.
At Our Lady of Fatima, we have many opportunities for our students to become leaders. Our students have the opportunity to play soccer, basketball, cross country, and cheerleading through out the year. We also have a strong student council, forensics team, altar servers, announcers club, bowling club, and honors league. We have a strong Performing Arts program and take part in many service projects as well as science and English festivals.
