A LETTER FROM OUR PRINCIPAL:
Thank you for your interest in Our Lady Star of the Sea School. OLSOS has a rich history of providing Catholic education in the greater Kitsap County region for more than 90 years.
We are excited to embark on the Catholic liberal education for both our students and their families. Why is this classical approach so special? It is a holistic way of teaching the human person as was the case up until the early twentieth century. Like those of the past, we are trying to teach our students how to think and what to do. We find great pleasure in creating a setting for students to learn through wonder and discovery. We avoid the pitfall of just teaching facts, dates and events for short term memory, but rather deep knowledge of a topic through poetry, recitation, craft and song. We intentionally make learning a joyful process that will enable students to discover that God beckons us all to be lifelong learners. Hence, what meaning this gives each of our lives at all ages.
At Our Lady Star of the Sea School we are very proud of our students and staff. Our teachers are committed to cultivating a love of learning in their students. My staff and I have a renewed love for our profession and are strengthened by student transformation from the mere learner to an engaged academic. I am blessed to be part of a school community set on fire to renew Catholic education and assist in the holiness of our students.
