Welcome to OMSSI

Believing in Achieving!

We are a K to 8th grade Catholic elementary school in the heart of West Philadelphia.  Families have relied on Our Mother of Sorrows / Saint Ignatius of Loyola Catholic School to help their children reach their God-given potential for over 130 years. Today, our Middle States Accredited school continues to be a strong faith-filled, academic presence.

We believe in educating the whole child.  Our teachers are able to focus on individualized learning because we limit the size of our classes. Children benefit from weekly classes in art, music, technology and gym. We offer reading support programs for all of our students and math challenge groups as well.  Our school is equipped with computer labs, projectors and wireless classrooms.  Nutrition education, before and after school care programs, and student counseling enhance our academic programs.  Our safe and supportive environment allows students to focus on their personal and academic development.

Please explore this website to see what our children can accomplish when someone believes in them.
