Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School delivers each day an exceptional educational experience, grounded in our Catholic faith. In partnership with families, our curriculum focuses on developing every student’s potential; ultimately creating model citizens who compete effectively in a challenging world, to make a difference in their lives and the lives of others.


Our vision of a model Catholic education is built on an unwavering commitment to educate the whole child-spiritually, academically and physically, making OLR the school of choice for families seeking a Christ-centered foundation upon which future success is assured. 


Faith, Excellence, Servant Leadership, Model Citizens, Community

We can express our Catholic values in a number of ways.  Each member of our faith-filled school community will be called to live out our mission, vision and values.  It is the way in which these values are lived and woven throughout the fabric of our Catholic school community that help us express our unique identity.

We believe that, as Catholics, we are called to be Disciples of Christ.  The distinct nature of Catholic education is rooted in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ.  Everything we do in our Catholic school communities is shaped by the Gospel of Jesus Christ, who is the way, the truth and the life (John 14:6).

As a Catholic community we value and promote: Faith, Excellence, Servant Leadership, Model Citizenship and Community. 


Learning and living the Gospel each and every day 


Actively pursuing spiritual, academic, physical and social excellence in innovative ways


Model Citizens

Developing moral and ethical citizens who will inspire others to make a difference in our school, our parish, our community and our world.


At Our Lady of Refuge Catholic School, we recognize that parents are the primary educators of their children.  We cooperate with them in the educational mission of the Church, which is outlined in the document, To Teach as Jesus Did.  This document describes our threefold purpose:

  • To teach the beliefs and doctrines of the Roman Catholic Church
  • To do so within the experience of Catholic community
  • 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.
