MISSION

Through Jesus Christ, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School calls young men and women to embrace their God-given gifts in order to KNOW TRUTHLOVE GOD, and SERVE OTHERS as His brave and humble disciples.

KNOW TRUTH

“Faith and reason are like two wings on which the human spirit rises to the contemplation of truth; and God has placed in the human heart a desire to know the truth – in a word, to know himself, so that, by knowing and loving God, men and women may also come to the fullness of truth about themselves.” – St. John Paul II

Truth is the foundation of our Catholic faith and Truth incarnate is Jesus Christ. We firmly believe and wholly embrace the reality of Jesus Christ’s outpouring of love and grace unto our lives. St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School is committed to fostering students encounters of this wonderful mystery of the Father’s love, the beautiful gift of Christ’s sacrifice and tender grace from the Holy Spirit. We commit to the evangelization of our Catholic faith through focused academics and providing space for authentic community to be built. It is our mission for students and faculty to be immersed in the knowledge of Jesus Christ’s good news. Opportunities to KNOW TRUTH will include, but are not limited to:

LOVE GOD

“Jesus is God, therefore His love, His Thirst, is infinite. He, the Creator of the Universe asked for the love of His creatures. He thirsts for our love. These words: “I thirst” – do they not echo in our souls?” – St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta

Our hearts were created for communion with our Father. He patiently waits at the tabernacle of our hearts, inviting us to share in the story of salvation with Him. In a world that wants us to silence the stirring of our hearts for Truth, St. Michael the Archangel commits to providing daily opportunities for discovery, contemplation, and discernment for just how deep and full the Love of God is for us.
