Overseas International Program

Since the founding of the Academy of Our Lady of Peace in 1882, the school has celebrated a rich history in partnership with our Baja California families, many who are fourth and fifth-generation OLP alumnae legacies. Our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion is central to the mission of the Academy of Our Lady of Peace. In our ongoing efforts to cultivate a diverse and inclusive environment, we have created a special partnership to provide outreach and access to girls interested in attending the Academy of Our Lady of Peace from countries in Asia, Africa, Australia, and Europe. We have partnered with International Education Management (IEM) to help us identify qualified, mission-appropriate, talented young women. Recognizing that these girls are traveling a significant distance from their country of origin, often without their families, IEM will take on the role of temporary guardian and identify homestays in the greater San Diego area to support these students. The outcome and the benefit are that by day, students attend the Academy of Our Lady of Peace and by night and on weekends, they are immersed in an American family experience.
