St. Michael's School in Ridge, Maryland is a fully accredited, private, Catholic school which offers a family-oriented, structured, disciplined environment of acceptance, trust and respect for your child. The robust academic program challenges students, but small classrooms allow for individual, specialized attention when needed. Teachers at St Michaels School work with parents to teach the whole child spiritually and academically. From the pre-K classes of three and four year olds to the eighth grade class, your child will feel special and protected. There is great pride in the accomplishments of each child while attending St. Michael's and beyond. Each year, St. Michael's teachers receive recognition for their outstanding performance. The art program at the school has had its products displayed at the Walters Museum in Baltimore and the Basilica, as well as local restaurants. A musical performance of our children was selected for viewing at the stadium when Pope Benedict visited Washington, D.C. The Home/School Association has received national awards the past two years for its innovation, teamwork and successful results. Not only do the parents support the school, but the entire community of Ridge supports the school in fundraising, time, and encouragement. We are examples of the proverb “It takes a village to raise a child.” Each week, children plan and lead the Friday Mass. Older children in the seventh and eighth grades are assigned as buddies to the pre-K and Kindergarten students, so each child has an angel on earth to look out for them. Music is a part of each day's start and taught in classes. Physical education, art, Spanish, computer lab, and library visits occur at least weekly. Advanced math is offered for students who qualify. Basketball is the favorite extra-curricular sport for both boys and girls and the school has a cheerleading squad which practices as often as the basketball teams. Sports camps and programs are designed for the younger students as well. Children at St. Michael's School are respectful, responsible, and well-rounded individuals who are preparing to be the future leaders of our community.
