Saint Michael is dedicated to developing the full potential of each student: spiritually, academically, artistically, and athletically. In doing so, we offer a classic, college-preparatory curriculum with a wide range of science, mathematics, English, foreign language, and history courses, as well as, numerous honors and Advanced Placement (AP) sections that accommodate students with varying levels of ability.
It is the school’s intent to make each student, regardless of previous schooling or personal aptitude, a self-disciplined and capable young adult who will undertake college level work with success and interest. Our approach incorporates an A/B day schedule which is similar a lot of universities use. Each student is enrolled in eight academic courses per semester, and attends four 90-minute blocks each day. Block scheduling enables teachers to augment the learning experience with greater depth and classroom discussion, while providing students the opportunity to enhance their cooperative learning and study skills.
For students wishing to garner advanced college credit, a number of Advanced Placement (AP) sections are available. Saint Michael also offers opportunities to participate in independent study, research projects, and internship programs to further enhance the curriculum in a hands-on setting.
Our course offerings are:
- Sacred Studies

- Foreign Language
- Fine Arts
- Physical Education/Health
