One. Together. – The Vision for St. Michael's - from St. Michael's Episcopal School on Vimeo.

After extensive feasibility studies and in fulfillment of the 2013-2017 Strategic Plan, the Board of Directors of St. Michael’s Episcopal School resolved that moving the Lower School to the Singleton Campus best serves the School’s mission.

This is MORE THAN A MOVE. This initiative brings St. Michael’s together to operate as ONE.
This is more than new buildings. It will build upon our history and traditions, enrich relationships to foster leadership and teamwork and make it easier for teachers to collaborate across grade levels. It is about doing all of this on a 70-acre campus of endless potential. We take this step into the future knowing that what made St. Michael’s the School it is today — a small school atmosphere, a commitment to academic excellence and an environment which nourishes Christian values — remains strong.

A Groundbreaking Ceremony for the new Lower School building was held in conjunction with a festive 60th anniversary celebration on October 5, 2017. Headmaster Michael Turner was pleased to announce that the new Lower School building will be named the Edgar O. Hubbard Lower School in honor of Mr. Hubbard’s legacy of leadership and passion for our School. Ed Hubbard served as the Headmaster of St. Michael’s Episcopal School for 47 years and retired in 2015.

In the months ahead, we look forward to sharing with you details of our progress.
As we celebrate the School’s 60th anniversary, it is an EXCITING TIME to be at St. Michael’s!

    A Milestone Day
    August 8 is an exciting milestone day at St M! Exactly ONE year ago today, we put shovels in the ground to begin the building of our new Lower School. 365 days later, the halls of Hubbard Hall are bustling with energy and activity as teachers and staff set up classrooms and prepare this beautiful new building for the first day of school! Outside, the new playground is coming to life, sod will be laid the start of the week and new outside signage will be installed. It is an exciting time to be at St. Michael's!

    We're Moving In!
    Building Completed! Thanks to the D1 Moving, LLC for helping St. Michael's move our administrative offices and classrooms. Undeterred by torrential rain, they pressed on and we hoisted the St. Michael's flag on the amazing new Hubbard Hall for the first time. Even on gray rainy days, the natural light in Hubbard Hall is beautiful and makes the new school light, bright and welcoming! We can't wait for you to see it in August! #OneTogether

    July Update: Heading towards the finish line!
    Our new Lower School building is getting closer to completion! Finishing touches on paint, carpet, and casework are being completed, technology is being wired, signage is going up, and outdoor road paving and sod installation of our new green is underway. (Photos: St M logos have been installed on the front doors as part of many new signage improvements. In our new front lobby, the cut-outs in the casework are child reading nooks which will be lined with felt/fabric and cushions. Classrooms are big and bright! The seating area of the waterfall stairs is awaiting final carpet, along with glass panels on the stair rails.) Counting the days until our "Meet Your Teacher/Meet Your Campus" Day on August 23 so our Dragons can view it firsthand!
