St. Michael Catholic High School, a college preparatory school of the Archdiocese of Mobile, aspires for our students to become scholars, leaders, and disciples of Jesus Christ.
In 2018-2019, St. Michael hopes to inaugurate an inclusion program for 5-6 students with life long intellectual disabilities. Designed for students between 2nd grade and 6th grade academic abilities, these St. Michael students would be taught by a certified special needs teacher for the majority of their day, mainstream into regular classes where possible, participate in the extra-curricular life of the school, and in full cap and gown, receive a certificate of "achievement" as an alternative to a diploma at graduation time.
We seek funding of $20,000 annually to defray program costs and to make this possible.
"We had this program at my previous school," indicates St. Michael principal Faustin Weber, "and it was very special-- not just for the kids in the program, but for the rest of the student body. If we can receive the support we need to make this happen, I'd love to implement it here!"
