"Where Safety Lights the Way to Learning"

Our Mission Statement:Safe Harbor provides before and after school programming and is dedicated to promoting and encouraging all aspects of student development. Our tools are motivation, understanding and creativity, which we believe are essential.

With great community cooperation and support we provide a safe and fun learning environment for Michigan City students and their families.
