All About Us

Excellence in Education since 1874

Saint Michael School, serving students in grades PK through 12, strives to develop people of strong moral character who are academically prepared for further education. Each student will develop self-esteem, a love and respect for faith and community, critical thinking skills and will leave Saint Michael School with the skills and tools necessary to be an effective, invested citizen of the world. 

Saint Michael School believes that the extraordinary can be achieved when instruction is linked to global citizenship. Our program celebrates hands-on and collaborative partnerships with institutions focused on "outside of self" thinking. We are committed to ensuring our students have access to broad and differing viewpoints in order to meaningfully participate in all aspects of life. 

We are devoted to creating fully formed humans in lieu of students ready for the workforce. We celebrate our differences, finding value in the unique, human experience and, all academic efforts and programs focus on enlightenment toward this goal.


It is with great pride and enthusiasm that I introduce Saint Michael School to you.  We are a thriving Catholic School located in beautiful southern Vermont in the town of Brattleboro.  

We are accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges (NEASC) and, approved by the Vermont Department of Education as a PK - 12 independent school. We are Vermont's FIRST Catholic School, located in the heart of Brattleboro since 1874. We are proudly continuing an over 140 year tradition of prayer, study and community service.  We are a learning institution where students grow in their Catholic faith, build lasting friendships, and are well prepared for further education.  Students not only participate in rigorous academic study, but also study foreign language/culture, music/music literacy, participate in chorus, the dramatic arts and are given ample opportunity to participate in after-school programming, including team sports.  

The experienced faculty and staff at Saint Michael School are committed to providing an engaging environment where the dignity of every student is affirmed, enabling them to grow and cultivate their God given talents.  Graduates of Saint Michael School go on to excel in private schools, local public schools and become the leaders of their communities.  They take with them a great education, a strong moral foundation, a love of God and family, and a commitment to serve others.  

I invite you to discover Saint Michael School and experience what we offer.  Please call to schedule a tour or to inquire about upcoming special events.  We look forward to welcoming you into our community.
