Dear Friends,

Thank you for choosing The Refuge Academy.  I feel honored to have you as a part of The Refuge Academy Family. You will find The Refuge Academy to be a spiritual environment for receiving quality Christian Education and at very affordable prices.

The Refuge Academy is the first private, Christian school of its type in the area.  It was established out of a burden by the body of The Point of Refuge United Pentecostal Church.  The school is governed by a distinguished board of directors, comprised of “Spirit-filled” men and women.  Working together with the pastors of local churches, it is their vision and spirituality which gives The Refuge Academy its oversight.

As the First Lady of The Point of Refuge, it is my pleasure to serve as Principal of this school. I was a Missouri certified school teacher in Southeast Missouri and I have worked in the public school system for many years.  I have a Bachelor’s of Science in Elementary Education with a minor in Mathematics.  My passion is ensuring quality education, above state requirements, and also challenging each student at their own level.  My burden is serving the students’ needs in education while developing their Christian character and walk with Jesus.

I stand ready to assist you and your children in the pursuit of a quality Christian education at The
Refuge Academy.


Yours for Christian Education,   

Miranda S. Doss


First Lady,

The Point of Refuge
