SMCS is an amazing school that lacks nothing! Academics, athletics, and security are at the highest point. Their academics are above-level and will surely challenge your child! In 8th Grade Math, they learn the typical 10-12 grade public school curriculum. If you would like a cheaper option (in comparison with other private schools), SMCS is the place to look! The students are challenged and by your child`s graduation, they will be two years above NC grade level (depending on what classes they placed in, they may be at an even higher academic grade level!) Their clubs, activities, and sports are very inclusive and allow your child to integrate social skills into their regular school life. They have cameras throughout the school and in the summer prior to the 2019-2020 school year, they are completing renovations to even FURTHER enhance this security. Every aspect of education that you are looking for your child is held in a single capsule: St. Michael Catholic School. Home? SMCS.

Excellent school. I have been with the school for 5 years now and have watched as the new principal has made significant changes in not only staff but in the curriculum. Technology and literacy have become the focus. I send my children there for the family type atmosphere. The students all care about each other and become one family. When one member of the "Family" is struggling not only do the students pitch in to help but the teachers also tutor or mentor. The whole focus is on Catholic principles and character - Compassion, Consideration and Nurturing are all things that make SMCS stand apart from public school.

Our child has attended for 4 years and I feel such peace knowing he is where he is! The teachers show much TLC while teaching them responsibility. We wanted a place where he would be taught respect as well as love. He has the best of both. Unlike many public schools we visited, the students are quiet in the hallways and have a structured environment in the classrooms. Very pleased and think you will be too!
