Admissions

Thank you for your interest in Saint Michael the Archangel High School. As a community of faith, Saint Michael offers an education that is both centered in Catholic values and adheres to high standards and expectations for individual achievement and social responsibility. We are guided through life experiences – prayer, liturgical celebrations, retreats, and community service – which nurture dignity and respect for religious and cultural diversity, and are achieved in a safe, caring, educational environment with a professional and dedicated faculty and staff.


We invite you to learn more about Saint Michael the Archangel by joining us for one of our recruitment/admissions events, or by scheduling a one-on-one visit to the school. 


Saint Michael prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, sex, age, marital status, disability, national origin, or citizenship in the administration of their educational, personnel, admissions, financial aid, athletic, and other school-administered programs.


This policy does not preclude the existence of single sex schools, nor does it conflict with the priority given to Catholics for admission as students. This policy also does not preclude the ability of the school to undertake and/or enforce appropriate actions with respect to students who advocate on school property or at school functions any practices or doctrines which are inconsistent with the religious tenets of the Catholic faith.
