Work Study Serve Lead Pray
Since our inception, we have delivered on our promise to provide 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. To learn more about the habits of mind and spirit, please read about our curriculum.
The Corporate Work Study Program, the hallmark of the Cristo Rey Network, is also an integral component of the mission of Saint Martin de Porres High School, which is to transform urban Cleveland one student at a time. The workplace learning that each student experiences will be an integral part of his or her development as a scholar, as a professional, and as a person.
We challenge our students to use their God-given talents and gifts for the purpose of serving and leading others. Students engage in service to the school community through upkeep of the school facility, student government, and extracurricular clubs and activities that promote school spirit. In addition, students participate in service projects in the greater community, bridging the gap between classroom learning and real life situations.
Saint Martin welcomes students of all religious traditions and places high value on the ongoing spiritual development of our students. Students are encouraged to engage in the planning and leadership of a variety of faith experiences including school Masses and prayer services.
Founded in 2003, Saint Martin de Porres High School is modeled after Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago and is a member of the Cristo Rey Network. The Cristo Rey Network of schools was established for students in communities that have limited access to private education.
