Saint Michael’s Episcopal School, historically known as Saint Michael’s Academy, is a school for children of all faiths and nations, providing a classical, college preparatory curriculum and firmly embedded in the Episcopal school tradition. We are committed to academic excellence and the growth of each child in learning, character, and faith, or, as it appears on the school seal: Scientia, Pietas, Fides.
Saint Michael’s is a small, coeducational institution comprising a Nursery (infants and toddlers), a Pre-School (Threes and Pre-Kindergarten), a Lower School (Grades K-4), Middle School (5-8) and an Upper School (Grades 9-12) in a caring, extended-family atmosphere. All grades meet daily for Chapel, with liturgy drawn from The Book of Common Prayer, helping us to promote that family atmosphere by centering our school experience on care for one another, mutual respect, and love for God’s good world. Our Sacred Studies program enables students to know their faith intimately and to wrestle with life’s big questions. A rigorous, classical curriculum prepares students for college and for lifelong intellectual curiosity. A classical education emphasizes the interrelationship of traditional disciplines in all aspects, ancient and modern, cultural and spiritual. A classical education must include a process of searching, questioning, learning to learn and to solve problems creatively.
