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.
The Corporate Work Study Program is a unique and complementary component of a Saint Martin de Porres High School education.
Through professional work experience and a rigorous curriculum, our students are learning important life skills like persistence, critical thinking and responsibility. They are building professional relationships with supervisors and colleagues who become a part of our teaching community. While funding a significant portion of their tuition, the students' Corporate Work Study Program is a critical component of a Saint Martin education.
Saint Martin has formed partnerships with the greater Cleveland business community to make the Corporate Work Study Program possible. Each student works one day per week, five days per month, in a professional environment. They become invaluable members of the workplace, completing entry-level administrative tasks such as filing, data entry, assembling information packets, and more.
