Personalized, one-on-one tutoring for children and adults to bridge the education gap.
Dear Friends,
St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center has determined that in compliance with the directive from Governor Whitmer that our classes/services will be suspended until further notice, due to the concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus).  This decision was made after sober consideration and consultation - but the health and safety of our students, volunteers and staff is of paramount importance.
Our staff has been very hard at work, maintaining contact with all of our students and families, to ensure that they are optimizing their time in quarantine to further their studies.  Daily phone calls and remote communication, as well as seating as many students as possible through online programs has been our priority.  Our team continues to provide services to our hundreds of students so that this challenging time in our history is still a productive one.
Unfortunately, our April 18th Celebrate the Center event (Family Movie Day at the Redford Theatre) has been cancelled and rescheduled for April 10, 2021.  We are genuinely sorry for any inconvenience that this issue has caused, but are sure that you share our concern for public health.  If you purchased tickets for this event, we genuinely appreciate your support.  Please contact the Redford Theatre at or call (313) 486-4421 to obtain a refund. Our administrative offices are NOT open, but we are checking emails for the duration of the suspended classes.  So if you have any questions, please feel free to call us at (313) 535-9200 and leave a message.  We will return your call as soon as we are able.
Please take precautions to keep yourselves and loved ones protected.  Have faith - we will get through this challenging time together!
Diane Renaud Executive Director/CEO
