St Michael's College is a Roman Catholic secondary school located in Etterbeek . The school was built in 1905 by the Society of Jesus in order to replace the previous school that had become too small. It is situated next to the Jesuit administered Saint John Berchmans Church.
The Jesuits have been in Brussels since 1586. By the request of Albert VII, Archduke of Austria and Isabella Clara Eugenia the Jesuits agreed to open a college. Inaugurated on July 14, 1604, the college is composed of a large rectangle formed by the Rue de la Paille , the Rue de Ruysbroeck and the Rue d'Or . The Jesuits were ejected from the school in 1773 and it was demolished in 1891.
