Elena Ruta, Class of 2020
"The world stopped during our senior year of high school. So many things we had to accept, so many things we had to sacrifice. But I’ve realized there is one thing that no virus could ever take away from me. The best four years of my life. This is what OLP means to me. The best friends, the best teachers, the best memories that I will forever cherish in my heart."
Creativity is at the forefront of what 21st century companies are looking for in their employees. Here at OLP, students continue to break the mold and think outside the box of normalcy and expectation. We give you all the tools you need to succeed in college including our block schedule and college preparatory curriculum.
Alana Hine, Class of 2020
"At OLP, I became part of a loving community filled with students who exemplify their faith through constant compassion. Becoming part of this sisterhood taught me to lift my fellow sisters up. I became a strong and independent young woman who is always ready to help those in need and love others unconditionally."

Troy and Paola Avila Gorostiza '93
As an alumna of OLP and my husband an alum of Saints, we could not imagine raising our daughters without the benefit of an OLP experience. Our opinion of OLP is further validated by our eldest daughter (Class of 2016), who quickly found her university classes comfortable because OLP prepared her for the future.
Paola is Vice President, International Business Affairs & Leadership Development, San Diego Regional Chamber of Commerce and Troy is President & CEO at Knowledge Stream Inc.
Every student at OLP is helped to realize she is a unique human being with gifts that can be developed and shared. In addition to a full class schedule, students are able to become active participants in a variety of school clubs, athletic teams, fine arts experiences, and social events.
