At Our Lady of Refuge School, we recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children.
Our purposes are to strive to teach the beliefs and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church; to do so within the experience of Catholic community; and to prepare students for service to others.
The administration and faculty strive to create an atmosphere that is conducive to the maximum development of the students' spiritual, intellectual, moral, aesthetic and physical potential.
This enables the students to integrate Christian principles, values and attitudes that will help them to live and to influence others to live according to the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
