Pepperdine University, committed to the highest academic excellence and Christian values, is located across the street from Our Lady of Malibu School. Through professors whose children attend OLM, students and alumni, Pepperdine has afforded our students the opportunity to utilize its exceptional resources.
Some of the activities that our students enjoy are conducting experiments in the Biology Lab with Dr. Tom Vandergon, participating in mock trials at the School of Law, performing at special events such as the 75th Anniversary Celebration of Pepperdine, and, we’ve used their exceptional tennis facilities for several fundraisers.
Dr. Theresa Flynn, an English professor, has been instrumental in conducting teacher training in language arts at OLM focusing on writing and rubric development.
Our continued relationship with Pepperdine University has had an invaluable impact on our students as well as our school.
Eat A Rainbow™
Nutrition plays a crucial role in the developmental, cognitive, and behavioral outcomes in children. Our Lady of Malibu School has implemented a program called Eat a RainbowNutrition Program. The Eat a Rainbow™ Nutrition Program is designed to teach children how to make healthy food choices and to develop good life-long eating habits. A primary focus of Eat a Rainbow™ is to encourage children to eat a wide variety of darkly colored fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats. Darkly colored fruits and vegetables are loaded with phytochemicals that boost our immune system and protect against chronic disease and cancer. Our students are taught the importance of eating healthy and our school strives to maintain this philosophy.
