Our Lady Academy's Full Profile



Our Lady Academy says

Our Lady Academy (OLA) is the only all-female Catholic school in the state of Mississippi. Established in 1971 as a comprehensive college preparatory school, OLA serves young women in grades 7-12, with a student body of close to 300 students. OLA is on the beachfront property that was formerly St. Joseph Academy (SJA), also an all-girls school. OLA is staffed by the Sisters of Mercy and dedicated lay professionals. Strong collaboration between OLA and St. Stanislaus (the all-male Catholic school across the street) maximizes the religious, academic, and social opportunities for the students. OLA offers various extracurricular activities including ten sports.



Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
