Parent Survey

Last week, we were pleased to have Mr. Jack Foley of Ovus Ater in Boston on campus as he begins assisting us in developing a new Admissions and Enrollment Plan for St. Michael’s. As part of Mr. Foley’s work with St. Michael’s, we are inviting your participation in a short survey that will provide important feedback as our plan is designed. The survey will take approximately ten minutes to complete. As no names are attached to the survey, we welcome your candid response. The results will be compiled by Ovus Ater and given as a report to the school. To participate, click on the survey link below. The survey will remain open until Friday, November 4. Your participation is appreciated.

U of A Guest at St. Michael’s

Season’s greetings from the Admissions Office!  St. Michael’s had a well-respected guest visiting our campus this week.  Dr. Kathy Carter, a Professor in the Department of Teaching, Language, and Sociocultural Studies at the University of Arizona, toured our classrooms and church and met our students, teachers, and administrators.  Dr. Carter was very impressed with all that we do at St. Michael’s! As a nationally known educator, Dr. Carter is well versed in the elements of exceptional schools.  She commented about how happy our students and teachers were, the warm atmosphere that prevails on campus, and how much evidence of collaborative, exciting learning is here. 

I am always so proud to show off St Michael’s.  Our fine students often impress visitors with their politeness and warmth.  They are eager to share what they are learning in the moment, and it’s easy for guests to see that St. Michael’s not only academically prepares, but helps to develop lifelong learners who will make real differences in the world.
