About Our School
Founded in 2005, Our Lady of Hope Catholic School is a fully accredited Kindergarten through 8th Grade co-ed school in Potomac Falls, VA. Our Crusader family is an integral part of the parish and the Arlington Diocese. Our single-track program allows us to offer a small, family-like environment that instills a strong Catholic identity and offers a balanced curriculum designed for success. Come visit our beautiful campus where you will experience peace and purpose. We are conveniently located 15-20 minutes from Leesburg, where many of our families live, and also very near Herndon and Reston.
By the grace of God and with Mary as our model, Our Lady of Hope Catholic School inspires our community to develop a meaningful relationship with Christ. We lay a solid foundation for academic excellence, encourage respect for all, and form “messengers of hope for the world.”
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.

At Our Lady of Hope your child will be involved in activities rooted in the tenets of the Catholic Faith. Your child will actively participate in daily prayer, weekly Mass, sacramental preparation, Stations of the Cross during Lent, and Adoration. Moreover, as a student, your child will 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. Our class and extra-curricular offerings provide a complete academic, physical, and creative learning experience for students.
