As partners in the education of your child, we welcome you to St. Michael’s Catholic Academy. We provide all students with a Catholic faith-based education rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ. Under the guidance of Our Lady and St. Michael, the Academy fosters and creates an atmosphere of warmth and caring; a place where the development of confident, self-sufficient, responsive, and moral human beings may flourish and grow. St. Michael’s endeavors to develop the spiritual, intellectual, emotional, moral, physical, and social growth of the children entrusted to our care by integrating religious education with academic studies.
The academy follows and adheres to the New York State Common Core Curriculum. It is acknowledged that each student has differing abilities and interests, and that learning occurs at different paces. An atmosphere of caring and trust with relation to God and others is provided to all our students. Our teachers have a commitment to and a sense of stewardship for caring for God’s children; to help them achieve their academic potential and to encourage them to live God’s word, participating fully in the life of the school and their local parishes.
Thank you for choosing St. Michael’s Catholic Academy. It is my hope that this Handbook will be a guide and reference to our academic community. I ask that you read it and sign and return the form attached in the handbook.
Let us pray for each other as we engage in the mutual task of educating our children. This is an awesome gift and responsibility. As in all we do we ask for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. God bless you.
Mrs. Maureen Rogone
