O'Hara Catholic School
Enter to learn. Go forth to serve.

With a 125-year history, O'Hara Catholic School provides an exemplary program for children from across Lane County, Oregon. Students from Pre-School through 8th Grade receive an exceptional education in a nurturing and loving environment. Graduates leave O'Hara with a strong foundation of knowledge, faith, and a way of interacting in the world with confidence and compassion.

With small classrooms, averaging 25 students per room, each child receives individual attention. Pre-School and Pre-K Classrooms have 20 students each. There are two homerooms per grade, allowing teachers to collaborate on lessons, strategies and resources creating the best education possible in every classroom for every student.  The academic program at O'Hara incorporates higher levels of thinking and advanced classroom technology, providing our students a stimulating curriculum that fosters a lifelong love of learning.

O'Hara Catholic School is so much more than a school. It is a unified, faith-filled community working together to support one another, and especially our children. There is no way to measure the value of an education deeply rooted in faith and values. An O'Hara education truly provides the foundation for high school, life, and beyond.
