Having been recognized by the U.S. Department of Education as a 2014 Blue Ribbon School of Excellence, Our Lady of the Lake Roman Catholic School is proud to be the only private or public school in St. Tammany Parish to be twice distinguished as a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence.
In keeping with the goal of continuous improvement, OLL added a glowing 2013 SACS CASI AdvancED accreditation report to its list of accomplishments. Having already received SACS CASI accreditation in 2003 and been designated a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence in 2004, OLL became one of the first schools to obtain SACS CASI AdvancED accreditation.
During the latest SACS CASI AdvancED Quality Assurance Review process, OLL received several glowing commendations from the Quality Assurance Review Team, a group of distinguished educators from around the state of Louisiana. The team chair specifically honored OLL with a rare commendation on differentiated instruction, referring to Our Lady of the Lake as the model school in the Archdiocese of New Orleans for differentiated instruction and grouping.
