St. Michael depends on the generosity of others to fulfill our mission. Our students do not attend school for the traditional 4 or 8 year educational career, so we strive to keep tuition lower than other private schools ($5,700.00 for the 2020/2021 school year). The economic reality, however, is that the cost to educate each student with special needs is over $15,569 annually.
The majority of the St. Michael School families are lower to middle-income households, with over 50% receiving tuition assistance. Because of the loyalty, generosity, and kindness of the New Orleans community, we are committed to raising over $9,500 per child, per year. Your support will ensure we are able to continue to provide highly effective and successful instruction in the areas of religion, reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, computer, creative arts, culinary science, vocational training, independent living, community integration, industrial arts, and music.
Our dedicated teachers quite often purchase items out of their own pockets for their classes. We also have an Amazon teacher wish list if you would like to purchase something for our classrooms. Amazon Wish List
