OLMCS first opened in 1952. The school was forced to close in 1968, but reopened in 1979 due to the efforts of a dedicated Parish community. Today, OLMCS continues to provide an excellent Catholic education to students in preschool through eighth grade. The school serves students from the communities of Gustine, Los Banos, and Newman. The staff, Pastor, and parish community are dedicated to providing a unique and rigorous educational experience in a family atmosphere permeated by the love of Christ. Thank you for your interest in our school. We are proud to share who we are!
"…may He give you the power through His Spirit for your hidden self to grow strong…"
We at OLMCS, an educational ministry of The Shrine of OLMCS, believe that providing a rigorous and challenging curriculum in a Christ centered atmosphere will help each OLMCS student grow intellectually, spiritually, physically and emotionally. Understanding that parents are the primary educators of their children, we are committed to working with parents to ensure each student has the necessary foundation to become an effective spiritual leader and a globally responsible citizen. We believe that by instilling the Catholic values listed in the Student Learning Expectations, and by providing liturgical and Gospel-rich traditions, each OLMCS student will be empowered to make choices rooted in love.
