Mission Statement for the Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Erie: The Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Erie, in collaboration with family, parish, and community, educate our youth to be well informed citizens with critical thinking skills that will prepare them to live virtuous lives.

In faithfullness to the teachings of Christ and His Church, students will be invited to know, love, and serve God in order to evangelize in a global society.
Throug a safe, nurturing environment, students are challenged academically, provided opportunities to explore the arts and athletics, and inspired to develop a heart that is open to service.
Mission Statement for Saint Michael School: Saint Michael, an accredited Catholic elementary school, partners with families in the education of the mind, body, and soul of each child.
We believe in shaping every child’s mind, body and soul. The education received at St. Michael School aims to prepare students not only for a career, but also for life. It helps students to deal not only with questions of what a person should know, but also with how a person should live. These goals of Catholic education will be best realized by programs that offer opportunities for each student to receive religious and secular instruction, experience daily living in a faith community and develop skills and commitment in serving others.
