Families will have the opportunity to tour the school and speak with Principal Sandy Miragliotta as well as other parents and current students who will be assisting with each tour. Teachers will also be available in their classrooms to answer questions.
Registrations for the 2016-2017 school year will be accepted at these sessions.
St. Michael’s was established 87 years ago in 1929. It is a faith-based school where children grow into responsible young adults grounded in Catholic values.
Principal Sandy Miragliotta stated, “The Open House enables us to showcase the strengths of our school which differentiates us from other educational institutions. We have the unique opportunity to incorporate our faith into everyday learning experiences. Children experience their faith not only in religion class, but also throughout their day, including meal times. The teachers work to reinforce common values and encourage a sense of social responsibility. Many families believe that St. Michael’s School is like a family away from home.”
St. Michael’s School is a member of the National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) and accredited by the Middle States Association Commission on Elementary Schools. Primary, elementary and middle school curriculums are based on guidelines set forth by the Archdiocese of Newark to prepare students for high school and beyond.
Controlled class sizes and average 16:1 student-teacher ratio fosters individualized attention and offers students the ability to engage in classroom inquiry, discovery, and learning. The early childhood education program offers pre-kindergarten 3 & 4 (full and half day) and full-day academically-based kindergarten.
On site before and after care is also available.
Extracurricular activities include instructional and competitive sports programs, drama and Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts.
