Our Lady Help of Christians Academy (OLHCA) is a K-12 school for boys and girls, run by the Society of Saint Pius X for the education and formation of the souls of students and, ultimately, the preservation and restoration of the Tradition of the Faith.
The Academy will celebrate 25 years as an SSPX school this year and boasts the distinction of numerous second generation students along with a rapidly growing contingent of 3rd generation students. St. Isidore’s parish has always exhibited an “all in” attitude that has shown itself in the ranks of alumni that include parents and grandparents of current students. These families can regularly be seen seated together for Mass and then joyfully talking, laughing and enjoying the full parish life in the always crowded church basement afterwards.
The Academy has 178 students enrolled for the 2019-2020 school year, making it one of the largest SSPX schools in the US District. OLHCA has a top-notch staff of teachers, well-educated in Catholic teaching philosophy and deeply involved in the US district’s educational and curriculum programs.
The Academy is faced with the happy challenge of finding ever more creative ways to accommodate burgeoning class sizes while planning to eventually build more classrooms. The future is certainly a bright and exciting one for our school!
