Middle School (6-8)

The OLOW Middle School encourages our young men and women to develop their spiritual growth and foster sound academic habits which guide our students on their life long journey of faith and learning. With a core of spiritual and encouraging teachers and mentors, the OLOW Middle School provides a supportive and flexible school climate that leads each student through a personal journey of faith and education, encouraging all students to reach their God-given potential.

Our Middle School begins to prepare students for their transition to high school.
 This preparation will include information for the Catholic High School Entrance Exam, given in the fall of 8th grade.


More than 90% of our Middle School students continue on to Catholic High Schools.


Our Middle School students continue to enjoy all OLOW has to offer and more:


  • Middle School academics are departmentalized with teachers holding certifications in their content area(s)
  • Advanced placement in math and science is offered in 7th and 8th grades with 8th grade students taking the NYS Common Core Algebra I Regents and the Earth Science Regents.
  • 50% of our graduating students over the past 3 years have been inducted into the Junior National Honor Society
  • Opportunities for Middle School Students to earn service hours through Student Ambassador and Student Council Programs
