Military Families at SMCDS

Dear Military Peers,

As a parent of children who have twice attended Saint Michael’s Country Day School spanning several periods between 2002 and 2015 I can enthusiastically and safely endorse the quality and dedication of this superb learning environment.

All three of my children have greatly benefitted by St Michael’s excellent and contemporary programs; two went on to top-notch high schools and are thriving while my third – in 8th grade – is applying now to a line-up of superior schools. We learned that for a rapidly moving military family where children switch schools every year or two that SMCDS provides an atmosphere where students can consolidate all their different learning experiences into a caring, calm but highly achievement oriented setting. The faculty is first-class, creative and multi-faceted, the campus stunning.

The fact that SMCDS also provides a tuition break for active military families is also a wonderful testimonial to how well-grounded and attuned this organization is to the challenges of military life and earnings. Bottom line: St Michael’s Country Day School is a great school and our children are all very lucky to have had the opportunity to learn and grow within its creative and nurturing walls.”

Military families are valued members of the St. Michael’s community. We enroll students from active duty United States as well as foreign military branches.  Our international families have come from Great Britain, Norway, Israel, Germany, Kuwait, and The Netherlands – just to name a few.

We recognize that the demands of new orders often require mid-year relocations, and we make a concerted effort to accommodate your needs if that is indeed the case. In the event that you are unable to visit campus, we can use phone, video-conference, email, and any means necessary to ensure that your questions are answered and that your hopes are fulfilled, both during the admissions process and once your child is enrolled.

We greatly honor and value the presence of our military as part of our St. Michael’s family, therefore, we have set aside financial aid monies specifically for ACTIVE U.S. MILITARY FAMILIES.

“In our experience, St. Michael’s has a great staff with dedicated teachers who are perfect in welcoming new students to the school. Children in military families are often subject to many changes in their early childhood, and the teachers and staff at St. Michael’s have done a great job reducing the stress of moving to a new location for our child.
Thank you for a great year! We hope to be able to come back at a later time and yet again be a part of the St. Michael’s family!”
All the best,
Hilde and Jan F.
Parents of Oscar, Prekindergarten
