All 8 of my siblings and I have gone (or still are going) to SMCA. We have gone there from kindergarten through 8th grade and had such amazing experiences. This school is like one big family and it gave me such a strong foundation in my faith, my education, and my social skills. I owe so much to this school and hope to one day send my future children there!

All 4 of my children attended SMCA for K-8. Each have gone on to a highly academic high school and colleges. Their foundation at St. Michael's gave them the tools they needed to become confident, successful, and productive adults. The amazing thing is that they can return year after year to say hello to their same dedicated teachers and staff.

I was blessed to attend St. Michael's from kindergarten all the way through 9th grade. I have now been out of high school for over 10 years, but remember my days there like they were yesterday. SMCA may be small, but what it lacks in physical size is more than made up for by the true love and dedication provided by it's amazing teachers. No one has had a greater impact on my life than the faculty at this school. Small class sizes mean teachers can truly get to know and build a relationship with each child aiding in their interpersonal skills development. All students were given extraordinary individual attention to allow them to develop their strengths and thus increase their confidence and sense of self. I am so blessed to have attended this school, and if I ever move back to Southern California I will send my children to St. Michael's without a doubt.

All my children have attended this wonderful school. Dedicated teachers and small class sizes helped my kids be confident and successful as they moved on to high school. The family atmosphere is a plus because everyone knows your name!
