Prince Gallitzin first visited this area in 1795. He held Catholic education in high esteem.
In conjunction with his goal to establish a strong Catholic community, he felt it was important to
provide a solid Catholic education to the children, free from outside influences.
From 1890 to the present, the mission of St. Michael School is to foster and maintain the fourfold purpose of Christian education: message, community, service and worship.
We, as Catholic educators, accept the responsibility to effectively fulfill these goals through which each child's personality and talents are nurtured while living out God's kingdom and message.
