A Message from the Principal

Welcome to St. Michael the Archangel High School! Rooted in Gospel values and Christian service, our school promotes rigorous academics and celebrates participation and accomplishment in all areas of student life.  Currently in our 33rd school year, we are proud of our legacy of Catholic identity and academic excellence.

St. Michael offers a unique and challenging high school experience for young men and young women as they strive to follow the path to which God has called them.  As a co-educational school, St. Michael provides a balanced and realistic structure which prepares our students for a successful college experience and life in the 21st century.  Our school is large enough to provide a broad college preparatory curriculum and numerous extracurricular programs, while still fostering a family-like atmosphere where our students find the inspiration to grow spiritually, intellectually, and personally.

 

Our Philosophy

St. Michael the Archangel Diocesan Regional Catholic High School is founded on the belief that we are persons uniquely gifted by God. Students are given the opportunity to acquire knowledge and to recognize and develop their God-given talents within the context and tradition of a Catholic co-educational community. We believe that the experience of a Christian environment, where the virtues of love, respect, unity and dignity are expounded, enables each one of us to accept Jesus as a model and teacher and to understand the message of the gospels
