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.
This past week we hosted the Facing History Partner Schools Network Celebration of Learning, and our very own James Hurley was awarded as a Facing History Change Maker. Co-Principal Ryan Hurley beautifully wrote:
"Jamie Hurley, Director of Counseling, has been a part of the Saint Martin community for close to a decade (eight years). Many of our students, alums, and families speak to the close knit family like atmosphere that exists at Saint Martin. For me this culture ends and begins where we are able to address our students greatest social and emotional needs. It never ceases to amaze me at how open our students are to reaching out to our counselors. A primary reason students feel safe in their identity during unbelievably vulnerable circumstances is because of the culture Jamie has built surrounding our counseling department. We simply could not be successful in our mission if it were not for Jamie and his ability to calmly and professionally, build warm, compassionate relationships with our students. There are no easy solutions to addressing past or current abuse, self-doubt, issues of identity, insecurity of housing, mental illness, or family disruptions. But this is what Jamie helps students navigate every day and he approaches his work with a thoughtfulness that reflects the seriousness of his work, but also with a tone of pastoral care that leaves students feeling loved and cared for."
Congratulations Mr. Hurley and thank you for all that you do at Saint Martin!
