What you can expect as a student at Mount Michael!


Mount Michael’s goal is to develop the soul, mind and body of every student. To that end, we pride ourselves in offering a wide array of activities for our students to get involved in. Whether they are competitive or participatory, it is all part of having a well-rounded educational experience.

Mount Michael requires its freshmen to participate in a fall activity to help them get introduced to the community.


Food Allergies and Dietary Preferences
Eating and sharing what happened during your day over a meal is important to all of us. That is why we make sure everyone can eat safely. If you have food allergies or special dietary needs eating may have an element of risk. For this reason, we take food allergies seriously, as we want you to have any amazing experience just like every other student. Your dining team will work with you to listen, prepare and serve every meal with care and safety so that you can dine with confidence.

If you have food allergies:

1. Contact Your Food Service Director
Have a conversation at the beginning of the academic semester to state your needs, ask questions and troubleshoot different situations to develop a safe and nutritional meal plan.

2. Learn and Understand Allergy Icons
We have a set of allergy icons that will identify ingredients that may cause an allergic reaction. There are eight icons. These icons will be placed on food items identification monitors so that all will be aware.

3. Entrée Names are Key to Safe Eating
Many of the items that will be served as entrees may have the allergen mentioned in the name, which is key for you to read and understand. However, always check the allergen icons on a dish.

4. When in Doubt, Ask!
Our goal is to provide each student with an exceptional dining experience in all aspects if you are unsure about a dish, ask a server or speak to the chef. Our staff is happy to help you.

Residential Opportunities

Mount Michael offers the only residential opportunity for a college preparatory high school in the city of Omaha. Independence, accountability and discipline are just a few attributes a young man develops when he lives in our structured residential environment.

At Mount Michael, 46% of the student body participates in our residential program. A vast majority of our residential students come from the Omaha area, and are 5-Day boarders—meaning they go home during the weekends. Aside from the 5-day boarders, Mount Michael also offers a rich international and national 7-day program that has featured students from over 25 different countries and 10 states since it’s inception in 2005.

On Wednesday evenings, many parents visit Mount Michael to have dinner with their sons and build community with other families.
