Integrity: Honesty, reliability and moral action are embodied in integrity. Teachers exercise integrity through their professional commitments, responsibilities and actions.

Care: Teachers’ practice is motivated by the best interests of the pupils/students entrusted to their care. Teachers show this through positive influence, professional judgment and empathy in practice.

Our Philosophy

Our Philosophy

Being a multilingual, multicultutal Catholic educational institution dedicated to serving the academic, spiritual, social, and psychological needs of students from Pre-K to Grade 12, OLGIS strives to foster a respect for the talents, abilities, sincere beliefs, wholesome visions, and goals of all people regardless of race, gender, religion or socioeconomic background.

Our curriculum emphasizes the liberal arts and it is revised on a regular basis so as to best prepare our students not only for higher education at top universities worldwide but also for a lifetime of learning. We have adopted the Advanced Placement (AP) program in our Upper School to give our students a unique education that enables them to think critically and independently and to drive their own learning. Our students become better global citizens through the development of at least one foreign language and cultural immersion.

Learning at OLGIS takes different forms. In addition to the traditional academic classroom setting, learning also takes place in social settings, on the athletic fields, during spiritual and emotional intelligence development exercises, and through required social service. These various learning situations foster interpersonal relationships, increase community awareness, build a sense of teamwork, and sustain commitment to others.

Dear OLGIS Community,

Thank you for another wonderful and productive school year. I can’t thank everyone enough for your endless hours of dedication chaperoning, donating and doing whatever was necessary to support our students—both at home and at school. Despite the unexpected consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic, you all hung in there, embracing the worry burdened and pushing boundaries to end the year successfully.

A Special thanks to our parents and teachers who, as usual, went above and beyond the call of duty and to provide whatever was necessary to add to our students’ already rich school time and unexpected online teaching experience.
That experience could not occur without the endless energy, skills and devotion of the OLGIS staff. Thanks and well done to an incredible group of professionals.

A final word to OLGIS students: Thank you for all your hard work throughout the school year. I am so honored to be your director; you make me proud. You were all sincerely missed; the school’s spirit revives
only with your presence.

Best wishes to our graduating twelve graders, whom we will miss greatly. You will separate and disperse in different countries around the world to pursue your dreams. Be peacemakers, keep the values that have been instilled in you from your parents and your OLGIS . You are going to face the world alone, your parents / guardians and your school teachers will no longer be physically present beside you, what remains is their advice throughout the past years, which I hope you will never forget.

My last piece of advice, when you face hardships, kneel down, and raise your head, ask the Lord to enlighten your paths.

please come back and visit your school, it would be a delight.

Until the next school year, here’s wishing you love, peace and joy… Stay safe

Respectfully,

Father Maroun Zogheib (Ph.D)

Director
