What We Stand For:
STATEMENTS OF MISSION
Mission – Saint Martin de Porres High School is Christ’s enterprise dedicated to transforming urban Cleveland one student at a time.
Vision – We are committed to the values: work, study, serve, lead and pray.
Means – An innovative college preparatory curriculum rooted in the development of habits of mind and spirit. A unique partnership with the business community reflected in our Corporate Work Study Program.
HABITS OF MIND/HABITS OF SPIRIT
The St. Martin de Porres community believes that habits of mind and spirit may be more important than specific content knowledge in the development of each individual. The habits of mind the school will foster include critical thinking, analytic thinking, independent thinking, creativity and problem solving; intellectual curiosity; willingness to accept and act on critical feedback; openness to growth, including possible failures; the ability to cope with challenging learning tasks and possible frustration, and the ability to work collaboratively to create an effective community. Rooted in Catholic teaching and the charisms of the Sisters of the Humility of Mary and the Society of Jesus, the school will foster habits of spirit including respect for self and others, humility, hospitality, personal integrity, commitment to community, dedication to nonviolence, care for the earth, and social justice which are lived expressions of a relationship with God. *A caring, Catholic community.
CORPORATE WORK STUDY PROGRAM: The Corporate Work Study Program Is an integral part of the Saint Martin de Porres education. It provides unique learning opportunities for our students throughout the city of Cleveland by engaging them in entry-level office positions in banking, law, medicine, finance and many other professional fields.
