Our LEARNING CONTINUES, even as our campus is closed.
St. Michael’s is committed to delivering upon our mission of superior academic instruction and providing our students with an engaging remote learning program. We have put into place what we believe to be a good model — a model that we will refine as we progress forward. St. Michael’s believes that our students deserve nothing less.
St. Michael’s teachers will strive to engage students in a vibrant remote learning environment that reflects our commitment to academic excellence and fosters a place where we find new ways of connecting and creating with our students and families. Teachers will focus on the areas of lesson development, knowledge sharing, and skill building in ways that emphasize core concepts and discovery. The health and well-being of everyone in our community is our first priority in this unprecedented time that requires us to think differently and re-set expectations as such. We are here to help and support our families through this transition as we want all of our students to thrive and succeed.
Our “Guide to Remote Learning” explains both what families can expect from a St. Michael’s remote learning experience and the thinking behind it.

Feedback on Our Remote Learning Program
With abundant thanks, we are pleased to share that our Dragon families have “filled our bucket” with so many encouraging words about these first weeks of remote schooling.
""When I compare St M's Remote Learning approach to what I hear my friends are experiencing (in public K-12, private, and college), St M is really doing a fantastic job. It's clear that we've got a great leadership team who is planning for and supporting our teachers & community. And our teachers who pivoted from in-class instruction to something they'd never even dreamed of doing? And did it in a week?? I'm AMAZED. I've never been SO GRATEFUL for St M in all my life. You've all been putting in the effort and hard work, and IT SHOWS!.”
"Reading through the material you all have spent hours creating in preparation for the beginning of remote learning, we are truly amazed at the thoroughness and guidance [St M has] provided. Thank you for the positive example you’re setting for our children, showing them (and us!) that no matter what circumstances we face, we’re all in this together and can learn and play and stay connected through it all.”
"Thank you for providing, not only for my children but also our family, structure and comfort during a time of uncertainty. The consistency of learning and being with classmates and teachers online has been hugely beneficial to both my children. As a teacher myself, I know this has required a huge amount of work on the part of every single person. Please know that it is all appreciated. Even more important than the leadership and organization displayed is the love and care shown by all of the members of the St. Michael’s community. We are so proud to be Dragons!”
