St. Michael Lutheran School is a state-approved private school, offering grades Preschool through Eighth, all taught by certified teachers. Our school is accredited by three separate accrediting bodies, including National Lutheran School Accreditation (NLSA).
The school prides itself on offering a Christ-centered, quality academic program. As an example, recent standardized test scores found our First Graders' overall performance well above the 90th percentile in reading, math, science, and social studies, with most year-end Kindergarteners reading proficiently. Our school was named #2 among Michigan District Lutheran Schools who administered the Iowa Test of Basic Skills.
These excellent scores are achieved through a blend of a Christ-centered environment, class size, outstanding certified teachers, and a strong curriculum.
In an effort to enhance the learning that goes on each school day, St. Michael offers fun and educational enrichment courses such as Science Olympiad, Mad Science, Drama Club, and Junior Achievement just to name a few.
Overall, this proves to be a strong academic program that goes well beyond what is available to elementary students in surrounding districts. You may wonder how this can be, given the high-quality public schools in our community? The answer lies in the class sizes and the Christian values. Teachers at St. Michael Lutheran School are able to teach more reading and math, and also include non-traditional subjects such as history, geography, foreign language, and religion.
