St. Michael's School Philosophy
The students of St. Michael’s School learn in a Christ-centered environment that fosters the formation and growth of the whole child. In dynamic partnership with parents, as primary educators, students are valued and appreciated for their unique gifts and talents, and they are encouraged to grow and develop spiritually, morally, intellectually, physically, socially, and emotionally.
The parents, administration, faculty, and staff of St. Michael’s School believe that we are called to proclaim the Good News, foster community, and serve God’s people. Students engage in prayer and reflection, actively participate in Liturgical celebration, serve the faith community, and demonstrate Catholic values and virtues. We guide students to make informed decisions, to lead by example, to think critically and creatively, to be compassionate, responsible and moral, and to respect the dignity of others.
The goal of the school community is to provide an exemplary Catholic education. With a balanced and rich curriculum comprised of challenging and multi-disciplinary academic instruction supported by the latest technologies and enhanced by a wide array of non-academic opportunities, St. Michael’s School encourages students to recognize and appreciate learning as an engaging and enjoyable lifelong process.
Aware of our primary mission as effective instruments of the educational ministry of the Church and witnesses to the love of Christ of all people, St. Michael’s School admits students of any race, color, racial and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities of the school.
