The mission of this site and this project is to preserve the rich history, tradition and heritage of the Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of Detroit, past and present. This site is not sponsored by any organization. It is motivated by a desire to remember and to celebrate all that has preceded us, before it is lost forever. It is also an attempt to remind us of the values of a Catholic education, and the bonds Catholic education has forged among the people of Southeast Michigan.
