Founded by Saint Katharine Drexel

Our long and storied history of providing Catholic education on the Navajo Reservation began with the mission of Saint Katharine Drexel–who was born into a family of power, privilege, and wealth–to found the Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament and serve the Native American people. With the help of Franciscan missionaries and local Navajo leaders, we opened our doors on December 3, 1902  with 76 enrolled students. Today we serve 315 students spanning from preschool through twelfth grade. Our faculty and staff members embark on a daily mission to impart knowledge within a vibrant and spiritually enriching environment. Here, we nurture the comprehensive development of our students, guiding them along the path of academic accomplishment and personal growth. 

MISSION STATEMENT
St. Michael Indian School provides students from local Native American communities with a quality education that is rooted in Catholic values, is sensitive to Native heritage, teaches leadership skills, and enables students to contribute in a culturally diverse world.
