About Us

Overview & National Blue Ribbon

Founded in 2005, Our Lady of Hope Catholic School is a fully accredited elementary school in Potomac Falls, VA. Our faculty and staff are dedicated to building a rich tradition in Catholic education, and our students are challenged to reach their highest potential in an atmosphere of spiritual and intellectual discipline. In 2015, the school was named a National Blue Ribbon School by the U.S. Department of Education, placing Our Lady of Hope in the top 15% of all public and private schools across the nation for Academic Excellence.

lgh0133Student Life Our students are involved in activities rooted in the tenets of the Catholic Faith. They actively participate in daily prayer, weekly Mass, monthly confession, Stations of the Cross during Lent, and First Friday devotions. Moreover, the students participate at Friday Mass, serving as cantors, choir members, lectors, ushers and servers. Each month, we highlight a virtue of the month and the children creatively demonstrate an understanding of Jesus’ words on their level. We consider service to be critical to the development of Christian character, so we incorporate community service into their school experience.
