St. Michael Academy is a premier “prep school” where it’s never forgotten that while “college prep” is important, it’s always secondary to “heaven prep.”
With its marriage of “Faith & Reason”, our Classical Catholic curriculum is the right educational approach to achieve these objectives. Far from “Common Core plus Mass”, the Classical approach is itself traditionally and intrinsically Catholic. As we pursue the True, the Good, and the Beautiful, the faith of our students is deepened. The principles of our faith are integrated throughout life at SMA, helping our students gain not only knowledge of them, but, the wisdom to apply them practically in their daily lives.
Please read more about our educational approach on the succeeding Why Classical Education page.

Over these last couple of years of celebrating Mass at SMA, I have come to know the excellent environment and education that these students are receiving in ways that couldn’t be imagined several years ago. I support the school enthusiastically as it continues to grow and offer more opportunities for growth in so many ways to our young men and women. Congratulations to all who made it happen. It is a wonderful addition to our entire community.”

My time serving SMA by saying Mass has reconnected me to those experiences of many years ago. My enthusiasm and awe at the creative educational environment I sense there is a valuable alternative to Public and Catholic traditional education. I can’t help but believe that it has a positive effect on students there and wish more young people could benefit from it.”
