Mrs. Sharon Dixon, Principal of Shrine Catholic Grade School is excited to announce the school’s annual Open House for New Families on Thursday, February 11th from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm.

Founded in 1934, the school offers an outstanding academic experience and faith-based education for children entering preschool through sixth grade. “We also provide the structure and discipline that develops the dignity of every child. We pray, learn and grow together – not just in the classroom but within the entire Shrine community,” says Mrs. Dixon.

Administration, parents, and students will greet families, provide tours and teachers will be available in their classrooms to discuss curriculum and co-curricular activities such as Math Club, S.T.E.M. Explorers, and the student choir. Representatives from Boy and Girl Scouts, CYO Sports and Band will also be on hand.

Dixon emphasizes, “We integrate our Catholic values across the curriculum through hands-on learning, technology, and collaboration. Our parents know their children are being supported in all areas of development.”

Shrine Catholic Grade school is conveniently located at 12 Mile and Woodward, Royal Oak, MI 48067. For information on the New Family Open House and to learn more about Shrine Catholic Grade School, please contact Michelle Shailor at 248.541.4622 or or please visit
