Our Lady of Guadalupe School (OLG) is committed to its students’ futures.

The Bensonhurst school includes the typical kindergarten through eighth grade enrollment, but also has its own pre-school program for 3- and 4-year-olds.

Students work in a multimedia, wireless environment and study the origins of English in the Latin and Greek Roots Challenge Program. Parents follow grades and assignments online and receive Parent Alerts about school closings and special events. What has never changed, however, is the school’s Catholic identity.

Students are actively involved in the preparation of First Friday and special liturgies, and learn to serve others through participation in the Mission Club and gift-giving.

Leadership is joined to service by participation in student council and the safety patrol, as well as member- ship in AV, computer and lab assistant programs.

Members of the two student choral groups and the Tone Chime Choir perform at local community events and parish celebrations.

Graduates continue to earn scholarships and admission to prestigious high schools and have earned recognition as writers, athletes and artists while still at OLG. A long list of successful alumni includes physicians, attorneys, educators and business people. Every student at OLG is encouraged to reach his or her potential in an atmosphere which encourages life-long learning.
