Welcome to St. Michael's

St. Michael’s Catholic Academy is a Christ-centered, college preparatory learning community, inspiring lives of service, courage, personal integrity and intellectual curiosity.

Now in its 36th year, St. Michael's Catholic Academy, a premier, independent, exclusively 9th-12th grade learning environment, remains centered on the four pillars of its mission: service, integrity, intellectual curiosity, and courage. Service helps students develop a global world view and build personal community relationships. St. Michael's supports the search for courage through a culture and learning environment that encourages risk-taking. Students are encouraged to look for the virtue of integrity in their own lives by reflecting on personal attributes of honesty and wholeness. At St. Michael's, students have myriad opportunities to explore and experience a broad range of courses and activities and become stakeholders in their own education.
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. The world needs leaders, people who know and choose to do the right thing.
