ACCREDITATION & CURRICULUM

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

"You will not find a finer education for your child in the Charlotte area than Saint Michael - my daughter has grown in virtue, knowledge, and love since attending."

— Thomas, parent

SAINT MICHAEL IS FULLY ACCREDITED BY THE SOUTHERN ASSOCIATION OF COLLEGE AND SCHOOLS COUNCIL ON ACCREDITATION AND SCHOOL IMPROVEMENT (SACS-CASI): AN ACCREDITATION DIVISION OF AdvancED.

Saint Michael Catholic School strives to educate the whole child: spiritually, emotionally, socially, intellectually, artistically, and physically. The school follows the educational curriculum developed and supported by The Charlotte Diocese Education Office, which is in full compliance with all state education requirements under the North Carolina Standard Course Of Study.

 

The curriculum is designed to prepare students to succeed in any rigorous high school academic program by providing a firm foundation in fundamental knowledge and skills; encouraging breadth of intellectual exposure and depth of study; and inspiring creativity and critical analysis. Within the structure of this curriculum, our teachers strive to meet the needs of each student, while challenging all students to fulfill their academic potential. Our curriculum is a continuously evolving one, as demanded by our increasingly complex and ever-changing world.

The Core Curriculum – Language Arts, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Religion – is the backbone of our academic programs. Emphasis on the Core Curriculum is a well-proven route to preparing students for their future, regardless of the academic path they may choose.

Throughout the school year, students are assigned projects designed to enhance the Core Curriculum. In addition to the standard course of study, all students receive regular instruction in Music, Art, Spanish, and Physical Education. These courses allow students to broaden their academic exposure, explore particular interests, and challenge their specialities.
