PowerSchool

 

PowerSchool is a secure web-based tool that enhances communication between parents, teachers and students by providing access to monitor grades, attendance, and homework assignments in real time from school, home or ANYWHERE there is an Internet connection.

 

A PowerSchool parent access account has been created for you. To access please:

  • click the forgot username and password link
  • enter the email address where this email was received in the Parent Username and Parent Email Address fields on the Forgot Password? tab
  • Enter your password of choice

 

In addition to web-based access, PowerSchool is mobile! The PowerSchool Mobile app is available for Android-based devices, Apple iPhone, Apple iPod touch or Apple iPad. Once you have downloaded the PowerSchool Mobile app, and logged into your account through a web browser to reset your password (directions above), a four-character code needs to be entered on the sign-in screen.

Schoology

 

Schoology is secure, web-based learning management system.  It displays the assignments and materials available to your child from their teacher.  You may also review the assignments that your child submitted through Schoology.  This site should not be used to review grades.  The official gradebook is in PowerSchool only.

 

You may access Schoology by navigating to https://aopcatholicschools.schoology.com.  Be sure to use the email address that you have on file with the school in order to access Schoology. 

 

Once you have accessed the account through a computer’s web browser, you can download the Schoology app from the App Store on a mobile device. Select our district by typing Archdiocese of Philadelphia OCE in the find your school box then enter your username and password.
