St. Michael Catholic School
Building God’s Kingdom: One Act of Kindness at a Time!
St. Michael School will begin their 120th year of educating students this August. The school is proud of the rich traditions of a St. Michael School education. Many students are the fourth and fifth generation of their families to attend St. Michael School. The school’s founding is closely aligned with the founding of Crowley in 1887 and our Church Parish, Saint Michael the Archangel. St. Michael School is grateful for the support of our church parish, school parents and alumni, and the Crowley community.
This year St. Michael School joins with sister Catholic schools throughout the nation to celebrate our universal mission of teaching students to become future servant leaders, faith-filled disciples and enriched citizens in our communities. St. Michael School’s theme for the year, “Building God’s Kingdom: One Act of Kindness at a Time,” focuses on love, understanding, compassion and forgiveness, guiding young students to find Jesus in the ordinariness of school life as they love and care for one another. St. Michael School is committed to help lead our students to a bright future of being people of faith.
St. Michael School is blessed to have an experienced and dedicated faculty and staff. All of the St. Michael teachers are certified professionals, many holding advanced degrees and beyond with multiple certifications. The faculty participates in ongoing professional development each year attending classes, in-services and conferences steeped in the latest educational methodology. Each faculty and staff member also participates in the diocesan religious certification program receiving 12 hours annually in religion formation. Twelve of the St. Michael faculty and staff members are graduates of St. Michael School.
While still holding on to traditional educational methods and skills, St. Michael integrates technology throughout all grade levels. The school is proud to offer 1:1 computing in Grades 2-8 across the curriculum. PreK through first grade are exposed to technology by using tablets in the classroom to enhance lessons and activities. As a technology- forward school, every classroom at St. Michael is equipped with a new Promethean Active Panel Board. These boards offer our students and teachers an interactive learning environment that increases collaboration and student engagement. In addition to staying tech-forward, St. Michael School is one-of-a-kind in enriching our students, PreK- 8th grade, with classes in Art, Music, Spanish, Computers, and Physical Education.
