We offer an enriched academic program that provides a solid foundation in core subjects such as English and Mathematics that will afford him the necessary skills to study selected subjects in greater depth. The Choir School is unique in that the complete academic program is integrated with a lively ministry of sacred music in a school environment that reinforces the values of Catholic education. The St. Michael’s Choir School community operates on the premise that life is guided by faith and is lived according to Gospel values. Central to these values is the idea that each person has great dignity and deserves the highest respect.
 
Our students acquire the skills and discipline necessary for success in life after graduation. They earn a place in the university they choose and many go on to professional and graduate degrees. It is our hope that our graduates will also be well-rounded individuals confident, caring, and committed to the well-being of those around them, with the knowledge that they belong to a community that will be with them throughout their life. Once a chorister always a chorister.

Finally, we believe that the education of our students is a partnership of parents, school faculty and the parish community. Together, we share the responsibility for the formation of our students. Our parents are committed to the mission of the Choir School. They soon come to realize that St. Michael’s Choir School is a very special place for their sons to learn, grow, and thrive. Our parent community is very active in the life of our school and collectively support the school by volunteering, fundraising and providing a warm and nurturing home environment for their sons. St. Michael’s Choir School is a caring and exciting community with a clearly stated set of values.
