Tradition

of Excellence

Welcome....

A tradition of excellence since 1873:

these words sum up the soul of St. Michael School. Excellence in teaching children the values of their faith. Excellence in academics, teaching each child to strive to be the best he/she can possibly be. Excellence in preparing children to be successful in high school and beyond. And, excellence in educating leaders who go on to become committed members of the community.

St. Michael School is not for everyone; it is a commitment. It is also a family. It is a place where teachers know the names of every student in the school, and where the students know and help each other. It is a place where respect and tolerance are not only taught but valued. It is a place where faith resounds through the entire curriculum, and where each student is taught to utilize to the fullest the talents and abilities that he/she has been given by God. If this is what you would like for your child, please give us a call. We’d love to welcome you to our family.

What They Say

Catholic schools have a tremendous record of imparting knowledge. Our schools consistently outpace public and charter-school counterparts by any academic measure. While our academic accomplishments are obvious, the secret to our success emerges not from how we teach math, science, reading and social studies. Our success emerges from our commitment to forming the whole child, particularly how we shape our children spiritually. So we do have children who learn about the arts. We do have children who learn about the humanities. We do shape them emotionally, physically and socially, but, most important, we shape them spiritually.
