Our Lady Of Refuge School

Our Lady of Refuge School integrates Christian principles that guide the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and above all, spiritual development of our students, supported by parents, to foster a climate of moral awareness and respect for all persons.
Our parish is a diverse and dynamic Catholic family community committed to Jesus Christ, guided by the Holy Spirit and relying on the patronage of His Mother, Our Lady of Refuge.
We serve not only the needs of our parish church, school and individual members, but also the broader needs of our society in union with the other parishes of the Vicariate of the Lakes and the Archdiocese of Detroit, through worship, stewardship, education, Christian service, evangelization and other programs.
The mission of Our Lady of Refuge School is to prepare students for life in a secular world, empowered by strong moral convictions based on a Christ-centered quality education.
