Archangel School was founded in 1992 by Mr. and Mrs. Michael Macaluso. As a World War II veteran and part of our "Greatest Generation", Mr. Macaluso sought to create an alternative to a public school system that increasingly moved away from the Christian and patriotic values that built our country. He also firmly believed that such an education should be affordable to all families regardless of their income or status. For over 28 years, Archangel has been able to deliver on this promise, providing an affordable, traditional Catholic education for all children. Archangel now serves the Rochester area with classes from Pre-K through 12th grade. The school is certified by the NYS Board of Regents, includes extracurricular sports, a robotics club, technology education classes and no Common Core! Archangel maintains a very low pupil to teacher ratio, ensuring individualized attention to all students.
However, our wonderful school is at a crossroads. With the passing earlier this year of Mr. Macaluso, the school's founder, the future of Archangel School is in jeopardy. As we are confronted by a pandemic, all schools are facing difficult, uncertain times. Archangel School needs your help to continue the promise that every child deserves the opportunity at an affordable, private, Christian Education.
