History and Heritage

Since 1957, when three sisters of Saint Joseph welcomed students through their doors, Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic School has been serving the residents of Fort Lauderdale and Broward County.

In 1959, the Sisters of Saint Dominic of Adrian, Michigan, began a leadership that fostered a robust growth of the school and its students. The much-respected and disciplined Adrian Dominican influence continued to flourish and help direct the school until 1994.



In 1996, our current principal, Ms. Althea Mossop, was appointed principal, and in the years since she has implemented an expansion of the academic, spiritual, and extra-curricular opportunities designed to continue the tradition of excellence that the first workers in Christ sought to establish in 1957.

Our current pastoral and educational leadership team of Father Jorge and Ms. Althea Mossop vigorously strive to continue the fine legacy of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Catholic Church and School. Our families experience a program that offers the best of Catholic Education: A dedicated and disciplined family environment fostering in the spirit of Christ the great potential of each student.
