An Education in Faith at St. Michael’s

For over 165 years, the name St. Michael’s has brought fond memories of a strong academic curriculum enriched by the cultural diversity of the parishes of St. Michael’s and St. John Vianney.

As partners in the education of the children of our community, St. Michael’s welcomes you to join as it develops confident, self-sufficient, responsive and moral future leaders.

St. Michael’s Catholic Academy endeavors to develop the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, physical and social growth of children by integrating religious education with academic studies.

The total program of St. Michael’s Catholic Academy, preschool through grade eight, is designed to promote each student’s intellectual and spiritual growth grounded in a deepening relationship with Jesus Christ.

Honoring each child’s individual needs, the academy motivates the student to achieve his/her potential in an atmosphere conducive to academic excellence, holistic growth and social responsibility.

Intellectual growth is stimulated with academic programs offered at the Academy. St. Michael’s is an original member of the Two-Way Immersion Network of Catholic Schools (TWIN-CS) sponsored by the Roche Center for Catholic Education at Boston College, providing bilingual education in English and Mandarin beginning in kindergarten through fifth grade.

The program provides students with a strong academic foundation to succeed in a global environment.

Rigorous academic programs meeting New York State Common Core standards are supported by St. John’s University Project TIE (Training Innovative Educators) and Curriculum Leaders Training (CLT’s) programs.

Faculty is well prepared to pursue higher academic standards integrated with Catholic identity as part of the daily curriculum for all students. A learning lab, resource room and speech therapy are also available on site.

Qualifying students receive support through Title I in ESL, math, reading and counseling. Fine arts instruction is offered in the areas of music, band, violin and Tae Kwon Do.

Enrichment in math and science is offered with STEM classes. In addition to a Gifted and Talented program for students who perform above their grade level, Merit Scholarships are awarded to high-achieving 7th Grade students who exhibit a commitment to community service.

Two technology labs, a fully equipped science lab and a state-of-the-art Media Center enhance the learning experience for all.

St. Michael’s recognizes each child as a unique creation gifted with talents and attributes that need to be nurtured and cultivated. Faculty cooperates with each family in the education of the children entrusted to its care.

The diversity of each child’s gifts challenges the administration, faculty and staff to engender in themselves and their students qualities of mutual respect and esteem.

The academy is open year-around with a six-week summer program available. It offers free breakfast and lunch programs for all students. Partnering with the Department of Education, St. Michael’s also offers Pre-K for All with full-day classes, early drop-off, and late dismissal for eligible students.
