What We Do

St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center (SVSF) provides free, personalized, one-on-one educational assistance for children and adults to help families break through the barriers to education. Since 1844, SVSF has served the needs of Southeastern Michigan. St. Vincent and Sarah Fisher Center does not focus on just one age group, but looks at the family as a whole. Both our Adult and Children’s Programs work together to meet the needs of the family in order to help them on their path to greatness in in a safe, supportive environment.

Interesting Info
  • Online learning and remote learning increased 400% from 35 partipcipants to 140 participants during the pandemic
  • Over 80,000 adults in the city of Detroit currently have not completed their high school education. This is the largest barrier to gainful employment.
  • When our students pass the GED, we work with our graduates to provide their "next step", whether it is continuing education, vocational training or a career.
