Providing students of modest economic means with a college preparatory education aimed at helping young men and women develop the habits of mind and spirit that will enable them to be successful in college, in their careers, and in life.
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 3, 102 members of the Class of 2018, the largest class in Saint Martin’s history, graduated in front of family, friends, and teachers who filled the Slovenian National Home.
People lined St. Clair Avenue as the students honored the annual tradition of processing from Saint Martin to the hall where their accomplishments would be celebrated and diplomas received. The graduating class once again had a 100% college acceptance rate, and received more than $6.3M in scholarship offers toward their higher education. Keynote Speaker, Councilman Basheer Jones, focused on the four E’s for students to remember as they move forward in their lives; Environment, Exposure, Education, and Experience. He also implored them to return to their communities to work for change.
The highest student honors were announced at graduation as well with Imani Simmons, Breanay Clemons, Matt Holmes, Taylor Love, and Diamond Allen winning the Fr. Welsh Work-Study-Serve-Lead-Pray Award. Enrique Freeman was honored with the Saint Martin Award, given to the senior who best demonstrates the qualities of our patron, St. Martin de Porres. Congratulations to the Class of 2018 and good luck at your college campuses all over the country in the Fall.
