Dear Prospective Parent and Student:

Welcome! We are delighted that you are interested in Our Lady of the Elms. Before families come here, they often ask the question: Why All Girls? Once you are here, the answer is crystal clear! An all girls education at Our Lady of the Elms, emphasizes substance over superficialities. This culture fosters a more centered, more challenging education at a standard that simply can't be achieved within a coeducational environment. Girls come to Our Lady of the Elms at a variety of ages, and we support them at every stage. Our expectations are high and your daughter's opportunities are limitless here at The Elms. We have a balanced program that incorporates the arts, athletics and community service in a learning environment that is all about girls. After our girls graduate, they easily integrate at colleges and universities across the country because of the solid sense of self and self-worth they gained at The Elms. Our girls have built a foundation for themselves so they are better able to make decisions for themselves, their future, and to develop meaningful relationships.

We encourage you to visit our school, not only to tour the campus and our state-of-the-art facilities, but also to meet our accomplished faculty and talented students. When you visit, you will be able to see how our Dominican tradition, educates girls and young women to listen openly, evaluate wisely, speak bravely, lead justly, and serve compassionately. These pillars are present in all that we do, from our academic programs, to our co-curricular activities, to our day-to-day activities. There is no better way to understand the culture of The Elms than to spend time with the people who bring it to life every day. We want you to get to know us and to become a part of our Elms community.

Please use our website as a resource as you navigate the admission process. You will find information on upcoming events, steps in the application process, financial aid information, and so much more. Please feel free to reach out to us at any time. We are honored that you are considering Our Lady of the Elms for your daughter's education, and we are eagerly looking forward to getting to know your family.
