Our Philosophy

Our philosophy? To continue our Tradition of Excellence.

The faculty of St. Michael School is dedicated to preparing students to become well-educated young people of service, who live out the gospel mandate to love God and to love others. The teaching staff believes that meeting the needs of the whole child – spiritual, intellectual, and physical – in a valued-centered environment is the purpose of the school’s existence. 

Programs are devised which foster the students’ abilities to think critically, make morally sound judgments, and work cooperatively with others. The teachers and the administration of St. Michael School endeavor to graduate young people who have the skills and the confidence to achieve to their academic potential in their further educational programs, and who bear witness to the message of Jesus in their daily lives. 

The unique contribution of St. Michael School to the whole community is its identity as a religious, value-oriented school, recognizing the human person as a God-related person, and by education, implementing the values that stem from this understanding.
