“St. Michael Parish is deeply committed to offering our children the highest quality Catholic education in the area. I am excited about this strategic plan and appreciate the enthusiasm that has been shown by so many parents and parishioners to come together and map out the long-range goals, vision, and direction of our school. Our school has an incredible amount to offer children, academically, socially, and spiritually.  We are blessed to have a dedicated and caring principal, teachers, and staff that give of themselves each day to allow students to have the best possible educational experience, as well as bright faith-filled future.”

 - Fr. Pete Colletti, D.Min, pastor of St. Michael Church, Independence



“St. Michael School has been a great blessing for many, many families from St. Michael parish and St. Basil the Great parish, and it has been that blessing for many years. I'm pleased that we have a strategic plan for the future of the school and promise to continue to build upon the very strong foundation put in place by those who have gone before us.”
