Head of School’s Welcome


Walter Landberg SMCDS

Hello and Welcome!

I am delighted that you are visiting the St. Michael’s Country Day School web site! I encourage you to peruse the following pages which provide a window into the spirit of the St. Michael’s community and many of the details of how our school operates.

St. Michael’s is known for its strong reputation for preparing students academically, with an innovative and engaging curricular program. Additionally, students at St. Michael’s have the opportunity to explore and develop a variety of skill sets through a robust specials and extracurricular program. Further, our school’s size allows for every child to be known and met where they are, both as a learner and an individual, and contributes to the powerful sense of community and connection across the campus.

St. Michael’s mission is aimed at developing leaders of character and confidence, who are prepared for success in their next educational endeavor and for the world beyond the school walls; a mission that could not be more pertinent to today’s world. St. Michael’s also recognizes that the world is shifting and that the ability to collaborate, take initiative, problem solve and communicate effectively will be vital for our individual and collective future. Indeed, here at St. Michael’s we endeavor to prepare students academically, but also with the ability to be the critical and creative thinkers we know they will need to be.

To fully appreciate St. Michael’s, I encourage you to contact us and arrange a visit, or take a virtual tour, so you can witness the school in action. Our admissions process is rolling, so you may apply at any time.

I am humbled to lead such an impressive educational community with a history of over eighty years of educational excellence, serving students on Aquidneck Island and beyond. From the moment I first set foot on campus, I recognized a palpable sense of possibility and a joy about learning and teaching that is inspiring. I hope you will join us for a visit sometime soon and experience this for yourself.
