Learn What Matters  


Saint Michael’s College is the place where students come to pursue their passions, dig deep, take risks, explore their faith, find success, and learn what matters.

A serious love of learning is at the heart of a Saint Michael’s education. Our faculty prove the point: they’re experts in their fields who use their knowledge to foster growth through student enrichment. Their doors are always open, and they’re on a first-name basis with their students. Our average class size of 19 students means you’re always a name and never a number. We’re one of only four Catholic colleges in New England with a chapter of Phi Beta Kappa, and we have special scholarships for students who are active in a local parish or Catholic high school.

The potential for real-world experiences abounds at St. Mike’s, with competitive student-faculty summer research programs, research assistantships, study abroad, internships, and capstone projects. Showcasing our Edmundite tradition of service, more than 70% of our students get involved with projects that range from building homes to helping rescued animals to mentoring young students in our local community. Our vibrant Campus Ministry will help you explore and strengthen your faith. St. Mike’s Fire and Rescue squad is the second-busiest college squad in the country. Our outstanding Wilderness Program gets you out into the great outdoors. In fact, every student in good academic standing gets an annual ski pass.

In addition to our proximity to the mountains, St. Mike’s is minutes away from the great college town of Burlington and Lake Champlain. From live music to spiritual retreats to theater performances and late-night cookouts, there’s plenty to do.

After your success as a St. Mike’s student, you’ll find you’re prepared for a career and a meaningful life. A Catholic liberal arts education means you’ll leave Saint Michael’s well rounded, well grounded, and ready for what life has in store for you.
