Academy of Our Lady of Peace


The Academy of Our Lady of Peace (OLP) is a rigorous college preparatory school with an unparalleled leadership program and a variety of co-curricular activities. For over one hundred and thirty years we have been educating young women in the spirit of excellence and innovation that characterizes our founding Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. We follow in the footsteps of many a brilliant and dedicated educator who established a holistic view of education that included the mind, body, and spirit. In that, we follow the mission to engender a collaborative worldview in the tradition of the Gospels. Additionally, OLP has been recognized as a Blue Ribbon School of excellence by the U.S. Department of Education. You will find, here at OLP, a community who is proud of its rich history and is committed to outstanding achievement.

Since its founding in 1882, the Academy of Our Lady of Peace has been faithfully serving the families of San Diego and its surrounding county. Inspired by the charisms of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, students at OLP are challenged to become academic, social, and spiritual leaders of the CSJ mission. We ensure that women find their voice and are given the skills to compete at all levels regardless of what their career and aspirations might be. The character of our alumnae represents the success of the multidimensional foundations imparted to each girl during her four year term.

I invite you to come to our campus and meet us. There is a tangible energy and excitement around learning and an authentic sisterhood that permeates our grounds and our halls, where young women learn of their own strengths while placing value and respect for the gifts of others.

Come see the energy. Come feel the excitement. Come experience academia in motion. And again, welcome to OLP!
