In 2016, there was a strong interest and a dream for an Orthodox School from a group of parents attending St. Vladimir Orthodox Church. Within months, other Orthodox Churches throughout Metro Detroit expressed interest and have helped build momentum towards the starting of an Orthodox School. With St. Vladimir taking the lead, we have come a long way, Glory be to God. Among other things, we have our Classical Academy curriculum planned, building plans approved by Lima Township, Washtenaw County, and the State of Michigan. We have reviewed bids and chosen a contractor for our build. Construction begins in November 2020!
In order to begin construction for the school, we are pulling a loan for $100,000. In the year of construction, there will be no tuition income to cover the cost and the expenses of the loan. We need your help to bridge the gap!
We appreciate any donation, and strongly encourage recurring giving to help us build a financial foundation for our endeavors! The monthly cost of the loan will be approximately $1500. Imagine 100 people at $20 per month, which equals to one Starbucks coffee a week...
This project is the BEGINNING of Orthodox Education in Michigan. Your support helps assure that we can flourish and assist future Orthodox schools as they begin their work!
If you prefer to send a check, please make payable to St. Vladimir Church, 9900 Jackson Rd., Dexter, MI 48130.
We need and thank you for your support - both MATERIAL and SPIRITUAL (please pray for us!), and may God provide you with many blessings in return!
