Our Lady of Loretto School was the first parochial school in Northern Marin County, when we opened our doors on September 3, 1958. We continue to be the only Catholic elementary school in the town of Novato, and carry a very proud tradition within the community.
We are dedicated to an education that is Christ-centered and rich in Catholic values. With Christ as our model and teacher, we foster the development of students who are Compassionate, Humble, Involved, Spiritual, Thinkers. Every month, our faculty selects students, who embody our Mission Statement by demonstrating these virtues. Students in all grades work hard throughout the year to collect their entire set of C.H.R.I.S.T. cards.
Our current average class size is 25 students, which affords an excellent teacher-to-student ratio. Our school offers a full-day Kindergarten program, part-time aides in grades 1 through 3, and a departmentalized Middle School program which supports both the academic and developmental needs of our students.
What makes OLL special?
At Our Lady of Loretto School we take great pride in not only providing our students with a solid academic foundation, but we also introduce unique middle school electives such as American Sign Language, Gardening, Dance, and Drama. We emphasize developing leadership skills, and instill in our students a commitment to give back to our community through service initiatives. We are thrilled to see the results reflected in our students’ test scores, the direct feedback which we receive from the different high schools our graduates attend, and in the ongoing involvement of our alumni in school activities.
