San Miguel High School

For those of you considering enrolling your child in our school, we recognize that making decisions about your child’s education is a top priority. San Miguel offers an affordable, private, Catholic, college preparatory education. Our mission as a Catholic, Lasallian learning community is to empower your child to reach his or her full potential. We accomplish this through a combination of strong academics, a unique work-study program, a wide variety of extracurricular activities, and an emphasis on values that will assist your child on their journey of life. 



We are looking for students who possess the following qualities:
