A Blue Ribbon School since 2013

Test scores in the top 15% of the nation reflect St. Michael School's academic excellence and worthiness of the 2013 National Blue Ribbon School award.


Working in conjunction with our families, the faculty, staff, and administration continues to strive toward academic excellence. Through a comprehensive range of programs and services, St. Michael School successfully prepares students for the endless challenges that lay ahead. Our mission calls us to teach the message of Jesus, to encourage service to others, and to prepare students for lifelong and responsible citizenship. We are committed to promoting academic excellence through an integrated, contemporary curriculum rooted in Gospel values and taught in a faith community.


We believe education is a never ending process of growth and challenge. Education enriches the whole person: soul, mind and body. We believe that parents are the primary educators of their children and together with teachers facilitate the learning process. We believe children learn and succeed in a caring atmosphere where they are given the opportunity to see their own value.

The academic subjects taught at St. Michael School consist of:

  • English Language Arts
  • Literature
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Computers/Technology
  • Art
  • Music
  • Physical Education

2018 Standardized Test Scores

Every April the all students in Third through Eighth Grade take the ACT Aspire exams. ACT Aspire shows strengths and areas of opportunity in five individual subject areas: English, Math, Reading, Science and Writing. The ACT Aspire tests, along with classroom observations, summative testing, and classroom assignments are used by St. Michael to recognize current student performance, to assess student achievement and to develop school improvement goals.

Curriculum Outlines

Listed here are general descriptions of the core objectives and learning goals that will be covered in each subject/grade level throughout a school year. The Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic Schools have voluntarily integrated the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) into our rich tradition because we view the standards as being in the best interest of the children and families we serve.
