Mission

We at St. Michael school in Union, New Jersey are Catholic Educators. As such, we view the foundation of our process of educating to be riveted in our Catholic Faith. We believe we teach by word, by action and most importantly by our personal lives.
Our professional service is geared to the age level of grammar school. Ever-mindful that in our system of academics we are forming our future world, we teach to the standards of the two Great Commandments, “Love God above all things” and Love your neighbor as yourself.” As a Catholic Grammar School we exist to educate the whole child, to help this young person grow into the adult whose life will affect a world of tomorrow, will make for a better place for all people to live.

Vision/Core Beliefs

Saint Michael School Seal consists of the shield of the Dominican Sisters surrounded by the wing and spear of Saint Michael the Archangel. Green and gold are our school colors. Our Motto: To Teach, To Guide, To Guard.
Saint Michael School is a Catholic community of Faith within the vibrant Saint Michael Parish. Our ministry of the Word is the proclamation of the Good News of Jesus Christ, a message of Hope. It embraces a well-rounded doctrine and moral presentation. The learning is developmental and places the child in daily contact with the ideal of Christian like and the challenge to live it. Children will discover that Jesus commanded us to love one another by seeing the application of the Spiritual accounts of Jesus as a teacher. The faculty strives to instill in each child the commitment of the message of Jesus.
Our Goal is to foster a sense of family commitment within the school community. We will also stay abreast of the most current practical research in effective schools and the programs that enable them (the students) to excel. Saint Michael School will provide ideas for creating and implementing programs for improvements that will boost commitment and motivation among students and teachers.
