When children come to St. Michael’s, they enter a warm, safe, and inclusive learning community that is small enough to foster a real sense of belonging and where they can safely take risks in learning and self-discovery. St. Michael’s is also wonderfully large enough to offer an array of rigorous academic challenges and engaging social development experiences. At St. Michael’s, your child will be known, nurtured, challenged, and loved.
As we say, We Do Small in a BIG Way!
We are small by design. A St M education is undoubtedly vibrant and powerful, as each student directly benefits from small class sizes with individualized attention and support and significant opportunities for hands-on learning. Teachers are able to truly know each student and instruct to their needs, helping them thrive and grow as lifelong learners. Emphasis is not only placed on growing bright minds but also on growing servant hearts who lead with kindness, empathy, and a commitment to help and include others.
Kids belong outdoors! Our 70-acre campus offers boundless opportunities for nature/academic discovery on our trails, creeks, and lake. It’s no wonder that our weekly outdoor education classes are a perennial favorite with our students. We continue to investigate ways to enrich the program, creating a unique offering that focuses on children’s emotional wellness -so needed in these uncertain times.

St. Michael's Episcopal School Reviews
The teaching of traditional Christian values applicable for the modern world. Focused class sizes which challenge and support bright, aspiring minds. A true sense of community and an obvious foundation to support lifelong friendships. The respect and love for the school’s own history and traditions is very well-balanced with an eye to the exciting future of a new campus with many modern advantages. Healthy competition in the classroom and on the playing fields is valued. Kindness and fairness are integrated with achievement and advancement.
In the midst of an ever-changing academic, societal, and cultural landscape, my wife and I continue to firmly believe that our children are getting the “best of both worlds” at St. Michael’s. We are proud to be Dragons!
