Principal's Message


Welcome to Our Lady of Mercy Catholic School!  Thank you for visiting our website!  


Serving the faithful community for over 60 years, OLM remains committed to providing all our students a Catholic faith-based, rigorous academic program aligned with the California State Standards, which includes the Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts and Mathematics. All members of our instructional team are engaged in continuous professional development as we strive to deliver high-quality, student-centered, joyful learning experiences in all our classrooms. 


Our students have not only done well academically but have excelled in the various co- curricular activities that we offer. Our students participate in our excellent Athletic programs that have produced fine athletes over the years. We provide our students opportunities to develop their fine arts skills, both visual and performing. We believe that the students, to be successful, are able to handle and balance their curricular and co-curricular activities. 


We take pride in the work that we do in Religious Education and Faith Formation. Religion, as a class, is a core subject that every student takes at OLM. The instruction that we provide establishes a strong foundation of their understanding of our faith. As a school, we have yearlong Faith Formation activities that beautifully complement our students’ religious studies. 


It is important for us that we establish a tight home-school connection. Your participation in the education of your child is key to his / her success with us. OLM is so blessed to have parents who have been very supportive of each other and the school. Their presence and support to the school and the parish have been immense and have provided our students lots of great programs. 


As you navigate our website, I hope that you are able to have a good feel of how wonderful our school community is.  Should you have questions, please do not hesitate to call us at (650)756-3395 or email me at principal@olmbulldogs.com.  


Wishing you and your family God’s loving blessings today and always!
