St. Michael’s College School was founded in 1852 by the Basilian Fathers, and stands as Ontario’s only independent Catholic school for young men.
The school offers students in Grades 7-12 an enriched, Catholic, Liberal Arts education complemented by a number of diverse co-curricular programmes. As a community within the Catholic Church, St. Michael’s strives for excellence through a synthesis of culture and faith.
The motto of the Basilian Fathers and St. Michael’s College School is “Teach me Goodness, Discipline, and Knowledge” (Psalm 118). This recognizes that being a good and disciplined individual, in charge of your own actions, is as important as the knowledge acquired through formal education. The motto is reflected in our mission to educate the whole person. Toward that end, St. Michael’s offers a Catholic, Liberal Arts education that exposes young men to as wide a range of knowledge as possible, encompassing the Humanities, the Arts, and the Sciences.
While St. Michael’s strives to prepare its students for university, we are also fully committed to preparing them to be future Catholic leaders within their community. We are inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ and we prepare young men to recognize and to choose good, to contribute to society, to be a neighbour, to form family, and to seek life eternal in union with the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
