The mission of the School Board is to work in partnership with the pastor and principal to enable The Academy of Our Lady of Peace to pursue the mission of a Catholic school by providing a broad curriculum that ensures academic excellence and to create a Christian environment where all students realize their God-given potential to become individuals in the likeness of Jesus and contributing members of their community and Church.
