    Welcome to Our Lady of Refuge

    Thank you for visiting our website. We hope to give you some idea of what Our Lady of Refuge School is all about.

    Our Lady of Refuge School was founded in 1923 and provides a superior education to students in grades Kindergarten through 8. We also offer a Pre-K program for 4 year olds. OLR combines the best of current teaching and technology with traditional Catholic school values in a warm and caring environment. We view every child as an individual with unique talents and needs. The faculty, staff and I are dedicated to the growth of our students academically, spiritually and emotionally.

Parents are reminded that they may send in medication for their child, but that medication MUST be given to the nurse. Students may NOT carry any type of medication. Please call the nurse (718-733-4507) with any questions.
