We believe in encouraging each child to develop a true passion for learning plus the creativity and flexibility to embrace and initiate change. The St. Michael School provides rich experiences and intense learning with a thorough grounding in the fundamentals of reading, writing and mathematics. The St. Michael School, an Episcopal school for children of all faiths, attaches great importance to spiritual and physical well being as well as community service and sustainability. Every school day begins in the chapel, where children of all faiths are challenged to consider how they positively affect the lives of others. From preschool on up, each day includes active play and a planned program of physical activity focused on health and overall fitness rather than competition. Spanish study is also part of the daily curriculum.
