St. Michael the Archangel High School celebrated 30 years of educating students Sept. 29 with a Mass and celebration.

The school held its 30th Anniversary Mass and Celebration, in conjunction with the Feast of St. Michael, to recognize its 30-year history.

St. Michael’s Chaplain, the Rev. Matthew McCaughey, presided over the Mass with St. Michael alumnus, Deacon Brad Doyle, giving the homily.

Students, faculty, parents, alumni and supporters gathered in the St. Michael High School gymnasium for Mass.

Longtime faculty member Jim Baldridge, who has been at the school since it opened in 1984, told stories about the early days of the school and gave some perspective on just how far the school had come.

Since its beginning, St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School has provided a co-educational opportunity for students in grades 9-12 seeking a traditional, comprehensive, Catholic education, school official said.

“With over 4,100 alumni, St. Michael High School is proud to continue its tradition of offering a rigorous academic program that integrates the teachings of the Catholic faith with the development of the personal skills of leadership, self-discipline and responsibility. The St. Michael family spans three decades and will continue to grow in order to serve generations to come,” Principal Ellen Lee said.

As part of the school’s continued growth, St. Michael is conducting its “Continuing the Warrior Legacy” Capital Campaign. This campaign seeks to raise $6 million for additions to the campus.
