St. Michael – Building a foundation for the future
Education is the greatest investment that a parent can make for their child, and here at St. Michael School, that investment will provide the foundation for a lifetime – a lifetime of faith, of life long learning, and the success that every parent wants for their child.
St. Michael School is a Catholic faith and academic community serving the students and families of St. Michael’s parish and families in the greater Fall River area. We are proud of the ethnic diversity of our students and commit ourselves to being a welcoming community.
Through recent diocesan efforts, we were happy to welcome may new students through the “Hope and Opportunity” program, offering financial assistance to low-income families. St. Michael’s is committed to providing Catholic education to every family that desires it for their children, and we work hard to provide the financial assistance for those who might need it.
Our school is founded on our Catholic faith tradition. We believe, teach and live the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ and the teachings of His Holy Catholic Church, demonstrating our faith in action through devotion and service to others. It is our aim to form both the hearts and minds of each of our students!
The Catholic faith is not only taught but also practiced in the students’ daily lives. The school community begins and ends each day with prayer and attends Holy Mass each week. Additionally, the students are also taught the traditions and devotions of the Catholic Church, having the opportunity to regularly attend the sacrament of reconciliation, and learn devotions such as the rosary and the Stations of the Cross.
Academic excellence is what we strive for at St. Michael’s and our faculty is working hard to raise standards higher to achieve even more. Our faculty and staff are committed to providing quality education to each student. Our smaller class sizes enable our teachers to spend more time with each student. Recently, we were happy to announce the addition of a literacy coach and math coach to further assist each student reach their academic potential.
We have recently purchased additional Chromebooks so that students have access to the most up to date technology. Our students continue to benefit from the advancements in technology, which will surely give them the foundation they need in the future.
This year, we were happy to announce that we were extending our pre-school program, creating a class for 3 year olds. Limited space is available in this new program.
In addition to the spiritual and academic formation of our students, we also strive to help them develop others skills and talents. Our students participate in CYO basketball and futsal, drama club, student government, as well as classes in health, music, art and physical education.
The sense of community has always been a hallmark of our parish and school and remains one of its greatest assets to this day. Our school community is truly a family! Follow us Facebook (St. Michael’s Church and School) or on Instagram (saint_michael_school) to see for yourself how wonderful a community we have at St. Michael’s.
The hard work of our community and our friendships with local organizations and businesses has enabled us to construct a playground for our students. We are blessed to have such a supportive parish family that supports the mission of our school and works hard to ensure its success.
