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.
Guided by our principles, Saint Martin teachers collaborate to plan rigorous and engaging units centered around each grade’s unique theme.
In addition to the course offerings listed below, Saint Martin students are required to complete a capstone project each year. These projects provide students the opportunity to practice research skills and showcase their incredible learning throughout the year.
