|St. Michael's Academy offers high quality, Christian preschool and elementary programs in a family-friendly environment. Our school believes that every child is a unique gift from God. This is why we have made a commitment to partner with our families to help educate children in a warm and nurturing environment that will best prepare them socially, academically, emotionally and spiritually.|
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.
