St. Michael’s, established in 1929, is a thriving, faith-based school where children become independent thinkers and grow into responsible young adults grounded in Catholic values. Principal Sandy Miragliotta states, “The Open House enables us to showcase the strengths of our school which differentiates us from other educational institutions. We have the unique opportunity to incorporate our faith into everyday learning experiences. Children experience their faith not only in religion class, but also throughout their day, including meal times. The teachers work to reinforce common values and encourage a sense of social responsibility. Many families believe that St. Michael’s School is like a family away from home.”
