Lake Michigan Catholic changes name to Our Lady of the Lake
ST. JOSEPH, Mich. -- Lake Michigan Catholic School announced on Tuesday that their name was being changed to Our Lady of the Lake Catholic School, launching a new era for the school and its community.
School officials say the name change reflects the school’s renewed focus on education, faith and citizenship.
“Our school started with the goal of giving children a good education and good moral training. We want them to be good citizens and build their lives on a foundation of the Catholic faith. While we call this a ‘new era,’ it is in many ways a return to our roots,” said Fr. John D. Fleckenstein.
As part of the transformation, student will now have an opportunity, through a service requirement, to practice leadership qualities and positively improve their community.
The school will also analyze top curriculum practices from top Catholic schools from around the county to boost the educational standards and excellence of Our Lady of the Lake.
These improvements and new era initiation efforts were made possible through a $250,000 donation from a private donor.
