    The St. Michael’s Athletic Department's philosophy is to offer a comprehensive athletic program at a competitive level that emphasizes the development of lifelong learning, values and skills through hard work, sportsmanship, ethical conduct and fair play.
  • Department Goals and Objectives

    At St. Michael's, we understand that our student athletes are just that: both students and athletes, and the athletic program must always be kept in balance with academic goals. In accordance with that premise, we:
    • develop programs that encourage broad participation, create school spirit, and relay a feeling of unity among the student body, faculty, and community;
    • strive for excellence in our programs that will produce competitive teams;
    • inspire all student athletes to give their best effort in the classroom, as well as on the field/court;
    • teach our student athletes that dignity, self-worth and self-esteem are achieved through hard work;
    • help our student athletes develop self-discipline and emotional maturity in learning to make choices under competitive pressure;
    • promote the importance of teamwork, good sportsmanship, loyalty and fair play;
    • develop an enjoyment of physical activity that will carry over to recreational involvement as a lifelong pursuit.
