What We Believe + Why It Matters

The four pillars of the St. Michael's mission drive our
learning community and student-centered philosophy: 
service, courage, personal integrity, and intellectual curiosity.  

Our pillars instill in our students lifelong habits of mind.
St. Michael’s is a mission-driven school because 
the world doesn’t just need smart people – it needs leaders –
people who know, and choose to do, the right thing.

"The amazing teachers are what make St. Michael’s what it is. The teachers care about their students - not just in an academic sense, but as a whole person, and that extra amount of care and personal connection is what both enhanced my enjoyment of the school day and elevated the education I received."  |  Abigail '18
