The purpose of St. Michael Catholic School is to continue the work of Jesus and to help children know God's love, so that they can proclaim it through their lives.
St. Michael School is a ministry of the parish community dedicated to fostering growth in faith, personal development and learning in each child.
From the first moment that a student sets foot in a Catholic school, he or she ought to have the impression of entering a new environment, one illuminated by the light of faith and having its own unique characteristics and environment permeated with the Gospel spirit of love and freedom.
Following this belief, St. Michael School exists to help all children learn who Jesus is and know God's love so that they can respond to that call of love and proclaim it through their lives.
Since parents are the primary educators of their children, St. Michael staff supplement their efforts for the development of the whole child.
Our purpose is also to provide a program of academic excellence and opportunities for Catholic worship prayer and Christian service.
The St. Michael staff strives to create a safe and secure Christian environment which accepts, nurtures and challenges each child to reach full potential.
We believe each student is a unique person loved by god and involved in a lifelong process of growth in faith, personal development and learning.
