We all know what 勇气 is – the challenge is to find it within ourselves. Before that can happen, though, we need reasons to look for it. Taking risks is a large part of finding 勇气. 为他人挺身而出, going for that improbable basketball shot, stepping onto the dance floor, 分享一首诗, or being vulnerable among peers in Advisory class, all contribute to tapping the well of 勇气 within. 在圣. 迈克尔的 we support that search through a culture and learning environment that en勇气s risk-taking in all of its forms.
As an 独立的 Catholic school governed by a 校董会, St. 迈克尔的 has the agility to respond to changing academic landscapes and emerging education frontiers. Our goal is to develop self-directed students who are stakeholders in their own education. Students have many opportunities to explore and experience a broad range of courses and activities, including classes in partnership with the University of Texas. From Fine 艺术 to Robotics – from Independent Study to 皇冠网址 – students are empowered to discover where their interests and talents intersect.
完整性, 像勇气, 是一种习得的特质, which takes practice and is expressed through our every decision, 每一天. Across the curriculum at St. 迈克尔的, we promote and provide a moral and ethical framework to give students a sound, solid footing from which to make informed decisions with true authenticity. We do this because the world doesn’t just need smart people – it needs leaders – people who know, 选择去做, 正确的事.
St. 迈克尔的 信仰生活 faculty do a great deal to inspire students to become servant-leaders. Beginning with the mandatory 服务学习 Program for which students contribute 20 hours per year as volunteers at a non-profit organization, and along with several opportunities for retreats and reflection during the school year, students are en勇气d to participate in the lives and needs of others with love and humility.
