Polish Language

We at The Polish Mission are proud to work toward establishing a national standardized Polish language test, which would recognize students’ proficiency in Polish, just as other languages.  We’re also proud to work toward bringing the Seal of Biliteracy to the State of Michigan.  The seal is a nationally recognized award given by a school, district, or state in recognition of students who have studied and attained proficiency in two or more languages by high school graduation.  It highlights students’ communication proficiency, allowing graduates to be easily selected by employers, and embark on a career utilizing their skills.  For more information on our work toward the national standardized Polish language test, or the Seal of Biliteracy, please contact Polish Language Coordinator Marzanna Owinski by calling (248) 683-0433.

Our Fr. J. Dapolska-szkolabrowski Polish School offers Polish language classes with elements of Polish history and geography for children ages 4-15. Curriculum also includes teaching about Polish culture and customs. Additionally, Polish School offers religious education classes taught by Polish clerics of Orchard Lake Seminary. Besides learning the Polish language, students are involved in various performances (Christmas play, Christmas carols singing), ceremony of May 3 and also art and declamatory contests.

We’d like to encourage children and their parents to take active role in the Polish School’s life. Additionally, Polish School offers the Polish language classes for adults. Please call (248) 366-8728 or (586) 242-2077 for more information.
