San Miguel High School opened in 2004 to create a learning community where students from families of limited financial means have the opportunity to develop to their full potential, regardless of religious affiliation. A Cristo Rey Network® school sponsored by the Brothers of the Christian Schools, San Miguel celebrated its first graduating class in 2008. Most graduates will be the first in their family to complete high school and therefore the first to attend college.
At San Miguel, students take a full college preparatory course load while simultaneously holding professional internships, working in corporations and earning nearly forty percent of their school tuition. The Corporate Work Study Program (CWSP) at San Miguel provides the important link between academic and career goals. Students are involved in meaningful work experiences and learn job skills that are transferable to other settings. They develop relationships with professionals who serve as mentors. These experiences allow students to focus on their educational and career goals, which require both long-range planning and personal sacrifice. Without the emphasis on career development through CWSP, San Miguel would be just another private high school – a school with tuition costs that would make it impossible for the majority of our students to attend.
As a Lasallian High School:
We educate in the Holy Presence of God, striving for excellence by instilling Gospel values in all we do and by inspiring academic and spiritual growth.
We believe that teachers and staff stand in a providential and grace-filled relationship with students. San Miguel students benefit from the witness of a caring, concerned, and dedicated faculty, administration and staff.
We are committed to create and sustain respectful human relationships in community. Within such a setting, San Miguel seeks to challenge its students to serve others, especially the poor, and to deepen a sense of responsibility in the world community.
We seek to serve and embrace students with varied academic needs and diverse social, cultural, and economic backgrounds and do so in partnership with families and all those who are committed to living the Lasallian mission.
