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 old do you have to be to participate?

The Department of Labor mandates that students be 14 years old to participate in the Corporate Work Study Program.

Does the Corporate Work Study Program interfere with classroom instruction?

No. Corporate Work Study is structured in a way that does not interfere with classroom instruction. Our extended school day and academic year provide the additional instructional time needed to meet state requirements. Students go to work one day a week and have classroom instruction on the other 4 days.

Do all students participate in the Corporate Work Study Program?

Yes. The Corporate Work Study Program is a part of the curriculum at Saint Martin. All students participate in the program from freshmen to senior year, financing a portion of their own tuition.

Does the student get to choose their workplace?

During our Lion Pride Institute (a summer leadership program to prepare new students for high school), faculty and staff will begin to assess each student's personal gifts and interests. The Corporate Work Study staff will use this information to place students in an organization where they will be successful. Students will also complete an assessment noting what careers they are interested in. Although it will not line up perfectly, our team does their best to match student interests with job placements.

How do the students get to work?

Saint Martin de Porres High School is responsible for all transportation to and from work. Students will be transported by van or school bus.
