Saint Martin de Porres High School is a Catholic college-preparatory program designed exclusively for students of modest economic means. Eighty percent of our students will be the first in their extended families to go to college. Our rigorous curriculum, which includes students working in a corporate environment, was designed specifically for our school by a committee of prestigious educational leaders.


Saint Martin was founded in 2003 and is chartered by the state of Ohio and accredited through the Ohio Catholic Schools Accrediting Association. Our mission is to transform urban Cleveland one student at a time and we are committed to the values of work, study, service, leadership and prayer. We are a part of the Cristo Rey Network of schools founded in 2001.


Our school's mission is to educate academically qualified students who have no other option for a private college prep program due to their economic background. Our student body is racially diverse being made up of 78% African-American, 11% Anglo, 5% Latino, 5.5% multi-racial, .5% Asian, and a male/female ratio of 40/60 respectively.


To help alleviate the cost of tuition every student participates in the Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP). All students work five days a month. This work component assigns student jobs in entry level administrative corporate positions. The work program covers approximately 60% of the annual tuition. The school is not tuition driven.

OUR GOAL

Hire, develop and retain highly-qualified, outcomes-driven, risk-taking, innovative, flexible, collaborative, reflective, faith-filled and generous women and men whose hearts are on fire.
