Welcome to Katherine Michiels School
Since 1976, Katherine Michiels School (KMS) has served Bay Area children and families. We pride ourselves on providing high-quality, affordable education within a nurturing, child-centered environment. Our mission is to foster each child's experience of the world so that he or she can blossom to potential and become a compassionate, autonomous and contributing member of society.
KMS has chosen the humanistic, progressive pedagogies of the Reggio Emilia educational approach and Council in Schools as our educational compass. Both approaches see the child as a competent and equal partner in the educational journey.
Who knows more about how to have fun than kids!
Each of our summer day camp sessions will offer a choice from the following:
De Colores Spanish Language Camp
Science – Chemistry and Newton's Law
Tree Frog Treks – Where the Wild Things Are: Biodiversity Bonanza
Musical Theater Camp
Basketball/Baseball Sports Camp
Campers will gain an opportunity to integrate their ideas and personal choice into their session theme. Each summer session will go out in nature, in neighborhoods, in parks, in shops, etc. around San Francisco with their counselor/teacher who is experienced and passionate about the theme. Together everyone will explore the worlds around them as well as the worlds of their own creation.
