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.

Saint Martin teachers collaborate to plan rigorous and engaging courses that prepare our students for success beyond Saint Martin. 

In addition to the course offerings listed below, Saint Martin students are required to take a College and Career Readiness Course that prepares them for college and their Corporate Work Study jobs. Students also participate in an advisory cohort with no more than 8 of their peers led by a member of our faculty or staff. During advisory sessions, students receive one-on-one support and mentorship so individual students feel cared for, supported, and seen, while creating connection between students and staff outside classroom instruction.
