The SMILE Program a unique Special Education program for students of St. Michael the Archangel Catholic High School. It follows Individual Service Plans for each student along with implementing Missouri Show-Me Standards and appropriate goals and benchmarks.
Individual attention is given to each student. A flexible curriculum helps students thrive on his/her own level. Our faculty will have high standards and expectations for every student. Students who successfully complete the SMA inclusive education program will earn a diploma, depending upon the modifications implemented for the student and the hours in the Special Education Inclusive classroom.
These students are encouraged to participate in activities including sports, theater, music, and clubs appropriate to their needs. If needed, after school tutoring will be available.
Perhaps the most unique aspect of the inclusive education program is the Mentor Program. Junior and Senior level students work hand-in-hand with these students in the classrooms. Mentors are chosen by faculty members based on their outstanding leadership qualities and dedication to the program.
