BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

YARD/PLAY AREA

Our playgrounds are separated to accommodate the two classes and gated to meet the State's requirements. Play structures are safe and age appropriate for the enjoyment of each student-adequate space for playing, gardening, painting, water play and the most popular, riding tricycles.

EVENTS

Some activities are conjoined with St. Michael Academy such as Open House, the very popular Parade of Saints and Fall Festival. Parents and grandparents a-like enjoy the Academy's Christmas and End of the Year performances! We take pride in bringing out the talent of our students while they perform as Angels, Joseph and Mary, Little Shepherds, and everything else that God has created.

FUNDRAISERS

St. Michael Academy and St. Michael Academy Preschool value your support, time and efforts in enrolling your children at our schools. We also acknowledge that most parents work and have very little quality time to spend with their family. For this same reason, we attempt to keep our fundraising events to a minimum. St. Michael Academy Preschool operates independently from the Academy and still help support each other's events. We rely on one or two fundraising events for the Academy Preschool to achieve financial goals that are not included in our fiscal budget. By having fundraising events, we keep tuition costs to a minimum and still make those special purchases. The involvement of you and the Community are so instrumental in the success of such fundraising events. A tradition to keep will be our popular "Sweets Sale" during the Holidays and our "Art Auction/Dinner" in the spring.

FIELD TRIPS

Field trips are an extension of learning and bringing the students out into the local community, broadening their Christian and educational horizons. Depending on the theme of the month, we will arrange field trips to local attractions of interest. Some of the most popular trips have included:

San Diego Zoo
Pumpkin Patch
Christian Youth Theater
H&M Landing for Whale Watching
Scripps Aquarium
The New Children's Museum
San Juan Capistrano Mission (using the trolley and Amtrak)
