Get to Know St. Michael's

St. Michael’s Academy has been serving the Haymarket/Gainesville area for over 20 years. We are a growing, thriving, Christian preschool and elementary school, serving children from age two through fifth grade. St. Michael’s is committed to producing both saints and scholars by providing a rich, challenging education in a loving, Christian environment. Relying on a rigorous, classical curriculum, our students are equipped for the greatest of academic challenges, and most perform one to two years above grade level on standardized tests.

By maintaining a low student-to-teacher ratio (most classes have about 10 students), St. Michael’s is able to provide each individual child the care and attention she or he deserves. And our emphasis on Christian character development further prepares our students to become Christ-like witnesses and shining lights (“Sparks”) to those around them.

In addition to our core curriculum, our kindergarten and elementary students all partake in Music, Art, P.E., and chapel as part of their regular program, and our upper elementary students have Software Programming. St. Michael’s Academy teaches Spanish to all grade levels beginning in Pre-K3, and German is available for students in Pre-K4 and older. We also employ preschool classroom assistants and a dedicated Resource Teacher to provide additional academic and classroom management support at all grade levels. And we offer an incredibly rich variety of extracurricular classes, including: Ballet, Jazz, Martial Arts, Piano, Chorus, Soccer, Chess, Aviation, and we are forming our own competitive Lego Robotics team.

St. Michael’s Academy provides before, after, and extended care at very reduced rates for those families whose schedules require some extra flexibility. We also offer lunch services four days a week to our kindergarten and elementary students.

St. Michael’s currently maintains two campuses, both located in the heart of historic Haymarket, VA. Our preschool is located on Fayette Street (just past the red caboose), and our kindergarten and elementary students attend classes at the former Old P.A.C.E. West building on Washington Street, our “Sparks” campus. The Sparks facility includes a well-equipped STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Lab, a dedicated Art studio, a music room, a Spanish room, athletic fields, a large playground, an outdoor basketball court, and a huge gymnasium of which we have exclusive use.

If you are interested in learning more about St. Michael’s, please call our Registrar, Jennifer Nelson, at: (703) 754-1948. Private tours, classroom observations, and student “shadow days” are available.

Come see why St. Michael’s is so special. We’d love to have you be a part of our warm, loving community and discover firsthand what a difference a St. Michael’s education can make in the life of your child. (Updated 9/16)

and when he is old he will not depart from it.

St. Michael's Academy is quickly becoming the premiere elementary school in the area for enrichment in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math STEM). We were recently featured in Haymarket Lifestyle Magazine for our innovative and unique Software Programming classes. Click HERE for the article!

In addition, in fall 2016, we opened our own dedicated STEM lab, complete with 3D printer, virtual reality glasses, 3D pens, drones, plus classroom sets of laptop computers and iPads. We also offer a highly successful STEM summer camp in conjunction with the Explorer Post.

Under the direction of Fr. David Monroe, certified Lego Robotics instructor, our upper elementary students are exploring the world of gears, sensors, pulleys, motors and so much more. Using a variety of robotic platforms (including underwater robotic vehicles), students in the Lego Robotics class learn to write software programs, solve complex mission problems, and discover what it means to work collaboratively. Out of the ranks of this class, we are building teams to compete in the various Robot Competitions in Northern Virginia.
