Mount Michael Benedictine School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origins to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to the students.
Benedictine values encompass a broad range of concepts that are central to life within a Christian community. It is quite possible to literally perceive dozens of values that can be deemed as Benedictine in nature. This a testimony to the breadth of “The Rule” and communal life established by Saint Benedict.
There are many opportunities for students to get involved at Mount Michael. Some are competitive, some are participatory. In either case it is all part of getting a well rounded educational experience.
“All guests who present themselves are to be welcome as Christ , for he himself will say:
I was a stranger and you welcomed me (Matt 25:35)” Rule of Benedict 53.1.
Mount Michael Benedictine School aims to nourish the gifts of the individual in order to put them at the service of all. Mount Michael Benedictine strives to provide stimulation and encouragement for young men to grow intellectually, personally, and spiritually. We consider our Campus Ministry program to be central to that growth.
A Benedictine school points to the Gospels and to Jesus Christ in the way it celebrates and values the image of God in each individual. Cardinal Hume, a former Benedictine Abbot, writes, “Above all, a good education must result in young people being not only gifted and accomplished, but also wise and holy.”
