Latino boys are more likely than any other demographic to drop out – but not at San Miguel School. Currently enrolling 85 at-risk Latino youth, immigrants or the sons of immigrants, 90% of whom are poor and arrive two to three years behind grade level, San Miguel serves as a model of innovative Catholic education. Academically rigorous and nearly tuition free, it limits classrooms to approximately 15 students, focuses on the mastery of basic skills in English and math, and nurtures the physical and emotional well-being of each boy. Breakfast, study hall, and tutoring fill out an extended day (until 5pm) and a 200-day school year maintains or accelerates achievement. The goal? To prepare each student for success in high school and in life. And San Miguel stands by its graduates, offering ongoing mentoring and significant high school and college guidance. Last year, 100% of students went on to college preparatory high schools and alumni continued to attain a 100% high school graduation rate, nearly twice the rate of their local peers. Now that's an achievement.
