Three Reasons Why Someone Should Attend
St. Michael's Preparatory School:


The Catholic Faith is the most important aspect of St. Michael's Preparatory School, which is run by the Norbertine Fathers of St. Michael's Abbey. Located on the grounds of a thriving Roman Catholic monastery in Southern California, the students attend daily Mass, nightly Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament, and are given 4 years of solid Catholic instruction. During their Junior Year St. Michael's students visit Rome, the heart of the Catholic world, for two weeks.

The number one reason parents send their sons to St. Michael's Preparatory is to be formed in the Catholic Faith.


St. Michael's Preparatory School ranks among the top 50 Catholic high schools in the nation. It is the only boarding school in that list. One hundred percent of our graduates go on to higher learning. With a teacher/student ratio of 1:4 every St. Michael student receives an almost personalized academic instruction.

St. Michael's Preparatory offers a classical curriculum, including the study of Latin, Logic and Philosophy.


St. Michael's boarding school environment and its single-gender education provide a rich culture that both supports and challenges its students. Living together, studying together and growing-up together, all under the watchful care of Norbertine Priests, the students of St. Michael's Preparatory reach a level of maturity which far surpasses that of their peers. A full sports program rounds off the St.Michael education.
