Welcome to The Academy

The Academy of Our Lady of Peace is a Catholic elementary school in the Archdiocese of Newark serving students from PreK-3 through the eighth grade. We stress Catholic values, educational excellence and strong community bonds. Come see the difference The Academy makes!

Points of Interest:

    There are many hungry families who depend on the Food Pantries in the area and the pantries are near empty. Catholic Charities has sent an Urgent Message asking for any non-perishable food you can spare. Please help feed the hungry. Drop off food in the gym foyer or at the school’s office this week. Thank you.
