PROVIDING THE FOUNDATION FOR TOMORROW’S LEADERS
A PERSONALIZED APPROACH TO LEARNING
 
Personalized Learning allows students to learn in an environment that taps their unique needs and strengths in order to engage, inspire and empower them to reach their highest potential. 
 
While many teachers already personalize learning and differentiate instruction, this initiative provides the tools to take what they already do to the next level:
 
- Technology: one of several tools to enhance curriculum and encourage student creativity, critical thinking, collaboration and communication. Fatima utilizes Edmentum Exact Path aiding in individualized learning.
- “Station-Rotation”: incorporates teacher directed instruction to small groups based on a student’s needs and student collaboration on a teacher assigned project, to create and communicate mastery of skills and knowledge.
- Fatima continues to offer its STREAM curriculum enhanced by Innovation Labs tools and Maker Space.  
 
Smaller Class sizes with a Personalized Approach to learning allow Fatima students to continue to achieve excellence beyond standardized testing norms.

What People Are Saying

My family will forever be grateful to Our Lady of Fatima for the priceless education that my children received. While academically speaking the education was extremely competitive with other schools in the area in math, reading, & science skills, OLF taught our kids the most valuable and priceless of lessons: those of faith, respect, and compassion. What they learn at OLF is gradual, their day seemingly no different than other kids from other schools, but as a parent, you see it in the little things: from them being excited about a story discussed in religion class that day, to discovering they know the entire Star Spangled Banner at a sports game, to them asking if they could donate half of their birthday money to charity. All it takes is a grain of sand.... OLF is just that.
