Being from Akron, I always knew the Elms as a respected institution that produced smart, kind young women. As we researched school options for our daughters, we where charmed by the school and its mission. However, it was seeing our daughters come alive and thrive that made us believers.

The Elms is a top-notch academic environment and a place where girls learn to use their voice. Every student, no matter her personality, is encouraged to speak up and participate, which set the girls up for success.
/ Heidi (mom of an Alumna '18 and daughters in Grades 8 and 10 /
The Elms is the perfect environment to allow young girls to grow into women in a close-knit, loving community. The faculty has taught me to work hard and never give up when pursing my goals, and the students have become irreplaceable family I will always cherish.

Our Lady of the Elms has given our daughter spiritual endurance coupled with leadership, confidence, strength and knowledge.
/ Annette (Mom of a daughter in grade 8) /
The Elms has allowed my daughter can take center stage and she does not have to compete with boys for the teachers’ attention. Girls occupy every seat in student government, every spot on the debate team and every position in all of the clubs and sports. My daughter is not sheltered from the real world, but respectfully driven to find her own voice.
