St. Michael School first opened its doors in the fall of 1995 to 21 kindergarten students. Today, the school serves preschool through sixth grade students. The average class size is 16 and there is a total school enrollment of approximately 288 children. The school offers a Before and After School Care program, hot lunch program, band, orchestra, and vocal music, enrichment activities, a technology class and so much more! St. Michael School is committed to excellence in all academic areas while incorporating faith into everything that happens in the building!
St. Michael students are well prepared to enter into junior high school when they have completed 6th grade. The 6th grade class has the opportunity to experience and develop leadership skills before they make that transition.
Please come and visit our school and see why your child’s education is important to us! We hope that you will take the time to read through our Newsletters in the section below and learn about all the fun and exciting things that happen at St. Michael School throughout the year.

Congratulations on choosing the Gift of Catholic Education for your child! This Gift will take some years to administer but will stay with them for a lifetime. Through this Gift, they will be nourished in mind, body, and soul. The Catholic school system contributes significantly to the social and cultural fabric of our Church and world. It provides a learning environment that allows your child to question and challenge the secular values of today’s society. Through the use of distinctive curriculum materials developed especially for Catholic schools, they will master not only the required skills and knowledge, but also clear expectations. These expectations are based on Gospel values that embrace social justice, social welfare, and life issues.
We are proud that the Sioux Falls Catholic School System has been firmly established for over 50 years. Our strengths include low teacher-to-student ratio, diverse student population, constant communication between teachers and parents, full-time special needs program, teaching of Catholic principles with daily prayer, religion classes, weekly Mass, and service projects. As we continue to function in an ever-changing society, we stay focused on the teachings of Jesus Christ and develop students who are prepared academically, spiritually, and socially for today’s world.
Along with our spiritual and academic strengths, we are proud of the many service-oriented activities that our school conducts. This year, our students collected food and personal items for the Presentation Sisters, the Bishop Dudley House, and for newborn babies. We have collected coins for the Presentation Sisters, written letters to troops in the Navy, sung for our first Friday senior citizens, and conducted many other activities that build character and help others.
We encourage you to become an active participant in the faith development of your child. You will have many opportunities to join them at school and at Church as they journey to become fully alive in Christ. By assisting them in their Catholic education, you will renew, enrich, and deepen your own Catholic faith.
One of the most important decisions that you make in your child’s development is the choice of their school. We are a perfect fit for families that are looking for a school that centers on Jesus Christ, teaches life lessons, and provides opportunities for students of all backgrounds to excel. We thank you for considering St. Michael School as part of your family’s future.
Thank you and God Bless,
