St. Michael School is a Christ-centered community that provides a caring environment emphasizing academics, moral values and discipline.
Through a comprehensive range of programs and services, St. Michael School successfully prepares students for the endless challenges that lay ahead.
St. Michael School is the beginning of your child's lifelong educational and spiritual journey.
We believe education is a never ending process of growth and challenge.
Education enriches the whole person: soul, mind and body. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and together with teachers facilitate the learning process.
We believe children learn and succeed in a caring atmosphere where they are given the opportunity to see their own value.
Catholic education strives to reinforce the principles and values of Church, home and community in an effort to mold tomorrow’s citizens.
Therefore, we strive to create and maintain an environment for this growth and challenge.
