Principal’s Welcome

Principal’s Welcome

Dear Prospective Families, 

I am honored and delighted to be the principal at Our Lady of Hope Catholic School.  We opened our doors in 2005 and since then have grown a warm, welcoming community of learners who support each other and grow together.  The school and church are beautifully situated on a peaceful campus in Potomac Falls, Virginia.  We serve students in grades kindergarten through eighth grade and are co-educational.  

The dedicated faculty and staff educate the whole child – academically, socially, physically and spiritually.  Our Crusader graduates are independent thinkers who are prepared to make a positive difference in the world.  Our Lady of Hope is known for its high academic standards, but also places a great emphasis on developing children who have character and practice the virtues.

The next chapter of our school involves a self-study accreditation year and subsequent five year plan.  We are always looking to improve and grow.  It would be wonderful to partner with you on this great adventure.  I hope you will consider becoming part of the Crusader family! 


To Jesus through Mary Our Hope,

Mrs. Jeanne Canavan
