More Details

What makes Saint Martin's unique is our 12-year commitment to each student to support them academically, socially, emotionally and financially from the time they enter our middle school throughout their journey through high school and college.

About half of our students will be the first in their families to graduate high school; most will be the first in their families to graduate college. As first-generation college hopefuls, they may lack the experience or familial support needed to navigate the college process and to succeed throughout their matriculation. Because our children come from families who live in poverty, even when our students receive financial aid and scholarships for high school or college they are unable to close the financial gap and struggle to pay for the smaller necessities. We provide financial support and college gap funding to help with this. Without our support, our students would not be able to attend the private high schools and colleges they are accepted to and most likely would not persist through graduation.

Our student body ranges from 97%-100% minority; 100% of our students meet federal poverty guidelines. We provide underprivileged young people the support, education and opportunities they need so they may reach their full potential.
