Choosing a school for your child is not an easy decision. If you are looking for a school committed to the values and philosophy of a Catholic education, academic excellence and spiritual development, look to St. Michael Catholic School. With more than 180 students in preschool through 8th grade, we offer an outstanding academic experience while integrating faith, dignity and respect into each areas of our students’ daily lives.
St. Michael School was founded in 2007, after two Catholic schools with a rich history in our area, St. Augustine and St. Mary, joined forces. By building on the strengths of each of these schools, St. Michael School has become an educational home to hundreds of students who have thrived in our growing environment, dedicated to promoting academic excellence and spiritual development in the context of the teachings of the Catholic Church.
To ensure our students are prepared for high school, college and beyond, St. Michael School offers a rigorous curriculum, close relationships with parents to embrace each student’s individual differences, dedicated and highly qualified teachers, and strong commitment to helping students realize their Christ-guided place in the world. We are a family, using the lessons we learned from Jesus Christ to focus on ways to help one another. We hope you will join our family!

Faith, Dignity, Respect
