Welcome to Our Lady of Consolation School!
A child is educated not only through academics, but also in the lessons of life. That is the premise of Our Lady of Consolation School, a tradition in Catholic education in Rockford since 1968.
From the classroom to the playground, we pride ourselves on offering a loving haven for Catholic learning and living. At Our Lady of Consolation, we are more than a school. We are an extension of your Christian home – small enough to feel like family, though large enough to respond to individualized needs. We are all this and more within an environment designed to foster knowledge and celebrate achievement, embrace childhood and discover faith.

We are a Catholic community dedicated to challenging the mind, strengthening the heart, and nourishing the spirit of every student.
For more than 40 years, Our Lady of Consolation has served as a beacon of faith and knowledge to area families eager to enlighten the hearts and minds of young learners. Throughout the years, Our Lady of Consolation has been a place where Christian values are not only taught, but instilled. Here educators share a love of God and a passion for guiding each child’s spiritual and academic journey. It is a place where trust and respect go hand in hand.
These are the so-called formative years, and for good reason. Children are seeking, probing, and uncovering the basics – and complexities – of life. At Our Lady of Consolation, we believe in nurturing lifelong learners both in and outside of the classroom. That is why our quest for knowledge and innovation remains fresh and constant.
Strong spiritual principles guide this approach, making religious education the heart of our school program. Our faith is incorporated into everything from daily prayer to student-planned liturgies, as well as a host of community outreach and stewardship efforts.
Academic excellence is a hallmark of Our Lady of Consolation School and is reflected by our comprehensive, quality curriculum endorsed by the Diocese of Grand Rapids and accredited by the Michigan Non-public School Accrediting Association. We are committed to providing strong academic programs that meet the needs of students today while preparing them for the challenges and opportunities of tomorrow.
Our educational programs include language arts, mathematics, science and social studies, as well as art, music, foreign language, technology and physical education. The quality curriculum is enhanced through state-of-the-art computer technology and programming, available in each classroom and our computer lab.
