Dane Storch, a former St. Mary’s student never gave up on his dream to attend Mt. Michael. Though his father is stationed in Germany where they moved last year Dane kept working toward achieving his goal. His mom, Michelle a former 6th grade teacher at St. Mary’s writes this about her son.
"I am so excited and at the same time my heart is breaking! Dane has been working toward this for a couple of years. He has had his eyes set on attending an all-boys, Catholic, boarding high school outside of Omaha, NE - Mount Michael Benedictine School - https://www.mountmichael.com. Mt Michael has earned the #1 ranking from Boarding School Review for All-Boys Boarding Schools in the country in two key categories: ACT/SAT score, and affordability. I thought Dane would change his mind once we were here in Germany, but he has never wavered and tested, interviewed and made sure all was in order for applying. He is ecstatic to have received his acceptance letter (only about 60 boys get in), and, he scored so well on the placement exam, he also received a small scholarship toward tuition!! My heart breaks because I thought I had four more years with my oldest. I am ecstatic knowing he will do nothing but excel at this school. We are forever indebted to Rita and Todd Madden for offering to host Dane on the weekends during the school year, and for all our Omaha friends ready to welcome him whenever needed. Well done my son, well done!!!"
