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.

How does Saint Martin prepare students for their Corporate Work Study Experience?

Saint Martin students are enrolled in a College and Career Readiness Course centered on FranklinCovey's Leader in Me Curriculum. Material covered includes work and study skills, SAT test preparation, college counseling advising, and help with college and financial aid applications. Additionally, incoming students participate in a two week New Student Leadership Institute before school to learn skills needed in the work place.

What supports does Saint Martin offer for students struggling academically?

At Saint Martin, we take each student's individual needs to heart. Through our intervention team and personalized academic success plans, we take pride in assisting struggling students to get them on track for success. Other supports include after school study tables, in-house tutors from CMSD and John Carroll, as well as Title I funding for math support for all grade levels.

Do you provide bus rides or routes?

We currently offer morning transportation for specific pick-up locations. We will be re-evaluating our stops at the end of the year, as we do after each year, so there may be some change for the 2018-2019 school year. There is no payment requirement and there is no sign-up, students and families just need to be at the pick-up location at the designated time to ride. If you have further question about the route or timing, you can reach out to Mary Carney, director of Student Life at mcarney@stmdphs.org or (216) 881-1689 ext. 318.
