Welcome to St. Michael’s School!

Founded in 1958, St. Michael’s School offers students in Kindergarten through eighth grade a dynamic and safe environment to discover, to learn and to grow. For over fifty years, the school has provided an exceptional liberal arts curriculum, which includes rigorous academics as well as athletics, the arts, and spiritual formation. We strive to nurture the whole child in mind, body, and spirit. St. Michael’s School benefits from our membership and full accreditation through the Southwestern Association of Episcopal Schools whose standards are modeled after those established by the National Association of Independent Schools. In addition, our school holds membership in the National Association of Episcopal Schools as well as the Arizona Association of Independent Schools.

A St. Michael’s education is designed to assist students in developing reflective, compassionate, creative, and disciplined approaches to learning.  Intellectual growth is supported by a strong moral foundation.  Our 21st century academics that incorporate creativity, collaboration, critical thinking, and communication are enhanced with community service projects, field trips, and long-established school and church traditions.  Our students have unique opportunities to enhance their educational experience at St. Michael’s including taking center stage at the Temple of Music and Art during the annual Fine Arts Night, reenacting Las Posadas, declaiming a challenging poem competitively in front of the entire school, exploring the mountains and canyons of Arizona and meeting a member of Congress on the steps of the U.S. Capitol.

Please contact me if you have any questions about our superb school.  At St. Michael’s, we create life-long learners who will make a difference in the world.  Our website will provide helpful information about our school, however, we invite you to visit our campus where you will surely catch the passion and joy that permeates all that we do.  Come and see!

With more than one hundred students working at six different agency locations for most of the day, their service did make a difference in the lives of others, including some furry friends. As we have talked about the work that Martin Luther King, Jr. did on behalf of others by quietly preaching peace, justice, and equality for all people, it (read more)

When I think about the many values that come from a St. Michael’s education, one is the validation our students receive from the faculty and staff. This often comes from the listening ears and wisdom shared throughout the school day. It is a common sight to see a teacher or a staff member engaged in conversation with a student or a small group. It may be at a lunch table or in a courtyard exchange; a morning greeting at the door or a casual encounter in a hallway. Not only (read more)

What better place to be during the Christmas season than at a school? There is a festive spirit in the air at St. Michael’s, and the excitement grows with each day. Santa hats and reindeer antlers are appearing, and cookies and special treats are filling the classrooms and counters. Christmas music is in the air. Adults and children alike can be heard humming a little tune as they walk along. Moreover, in each child’s eyes there is a sparkle, a little twinkle, and a sense of wonder and awe as (read more)
