St. Michael Catholic School is a co-educational, private elementary/middle school (Pre-Kindergarten-8th grade) located in the Galleria area and serving southwest Houston, TX. St. Michael Catholic School is accredited by the Texas Education Agency (TEA) through the Texas Catholic Conference Education Department (TCCED). St. Michael Catholic School is staffed by degreed and certified teachers and qualified staff chosen, supervised, and evaluated by the Principal for their competence and dedication to the development of each student to his/her potential.
St. Michael Catholic School is dedicated to integrating faith and knowledge in the rich tradition of Catholic education. As an extension of the family, we exist to serve the young people in our care. The school is committed to the development of the whole person; challenging the growth of mind, body and spirit. We exist for those who truly value a uniquely Catholic elementary school.
For these reasons, the entire curriculum and school program is designed to promote the dignity and development of the person in all aspects and in the light of truth. Learning will bear fruit in a context of Christ’s love for us and our love of one another. Our focus will be on human dignity and the uniqueness of every person, each a valued gift from God.
The school will provide a balance between spiritual growth, academic excellence and full participation in activities within a program directed at the growth of the whole person. Not only will students be expected to demonstrate academic competence, they will equally be challenged to deal with personal strengths and weaknesses as well as critical questions regarding their actions, behavior, relations with one another, and their relationship with God.
Catholic Education – A Shared Experience
When you enroll your child at St. Michael Catholic School, you enter a partnership of the Church, the School, yourself, and your child. This partnership is dedicated to the development of your child as an individual with an awareness of his/her role within the Christian community. The success of the partnership depends on the cooperation of all involved.
Education is one of the most important ways in which the Church fulfills its commitment to the dignity of the person and the building of community. Recognizing the importance of this ministry, the Parish, the Pastor, the Parish staff, and the Pastoral Council strongly support the school with their spiritual, emotional, financial, and physical resources.
The faculty and staff of St. Michael Catholic School share with you the responsibility of guiding your child’s growth in all areas of his/her life: spiritual, intellectual, physical, psychological, and social. In accepting your child as a member of the St. Michael Catholic School family, we pledge our time and talents to his/her growth and development, and we affirm our responsibility for cooperating with you for your child’s welfare.
As the parent/guardian in this partnership, you bring your support, your time, and your talents to our joint effort. You, in fact, remain the primary educator of your child in the values and responsibilities of Christian community. You do not relinquish, but share the responsibility for your child’s religious education, both sacramental and in community.
Your child accepts the responsibility to become the best person he/she can be in all areas of life and to prepare him/herself as a leader in both a Christian and a secular world. Parents who decide that the direction of the school is no longer acceptable for their child(ren), have the ultimate right to choose another school. The success of this experience in Christian community requires the best efforts of all involved.
