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, so as to 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 – much like what is found in a university setting – where each student is enrolled in 8 academic courses per semester, and attends four, 85-minute classes per day, alternating Period 1,2,3,4 (“A” day) with Period 5,6,7,8 (“B” day). Also termed “block scheduling”, this approach 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 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.
