Providing meaningful opportunities for professionals to interact with and mentor students while making a difference in their lives. Over 100 Cleveland-area businesses, firms, and non-profits have partnered with Saint Martin.
Saint Martin invites students into our school community who are committed to academic, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical growth. During the admissions process, Saint Martin reviews academic, disciplinary, and attendance records, as well as teacher recommendations.
While we are serious about preparing students for college and career success, we also believe that school should be fun! Caring for the whole student, we believe that involvement in extracurriculars is essential to continuing to form talented, well-rounded, and interesting individuals.
On Sunday, June 2, 78 members of the Class of 2019, graduated in front of family, friends, and teachers who filled the Slovenian National Home.
The Class of 2019 honored a long held tradition as they processed from Saint Martin down Saint Clair Avenue to the hall where they would be recognized for their accomplishments and receive their diplomas. This graduating class received 100% acceptance into college and over $4.5M in college scholarships to pursue their higher education. Keynote speaker, Reverend Courtney Clayton Jenkins, gave a captivating address that left everyone in the crowd on their feet in a standing ovation. She spoke about what it means to be a Lion and how you have to grow into your paws, be courageous, and follow your pride.
In addition to the conferral of diplomas, the highest student honors were announced including the Fr. Welsh Work-Study-Serve-Lead-Pray Award, won by valedictorian Kamarri Hall, Niyah Malone, and Emareion Trotter.
