Rooted in Faith…. Committed to Excellence



The mission of St. Michael Parish School is to provide the on-going educational formation of all students in the context of Gospel values.
As a Catholic community, we strive to elevate the performance levels of all students. Challenging them spiritually academically, socially, and emotionally prepares students to be responsible members of society in the 21st Century.
St. Michael Parish School calls all members to use their God-given talents to live out their faith through stewardship by serving God and others.


St. Michael Parish School community, while building traditional academic skills, believes that our underlying value is in proclaiming the Good News of Jesus Christ to all while encouraging all to accept Him as their Lord. Providing a prayerful atmosphere is a continuing goal. Recognizing the individuality of the person, our aim is to create an environment in which the school community can feel happy with the person he or she is becoming. Having built a foundation based on the Good News, each individual has the potential for witnessing the Catholic faith to the world.
