“To be entrusted with the teaching of the young is a
great gift and grace of God.”
St. John Baptiste de La Salle
Dear Friends of San Miguel,
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. Many of our graduates are the first in their family to complete high school and therefore the first to attend college.
As a member of a national network of thirty-five high schools, San Miguel exists specifically to provide a college and career preparatory education to urban youth with limited educational opportunities. San Miguel High School is proud to be a part of the Cristo Rey Network and to carry on St. John Baptiste de La Salle’s mission to provide a human and Christian education to youth, regardless of their income or zip code.
Our stakeholders have celebrated the school’s welcoming environment, the individualized support provided to our students and the inspired success of our graduates, many of whom are now college graduates and members of the Tucson workforce. Building on our successes to date, stakeholders have issued a call for us to continue leveraging our strengths as an educational leader, increase our visibility and contribution to the Tucson community, and fulfill our mission as a Lasallian, Catholic, college-preparatory school that prepares our graduates for meaningful careers and a life framed in the Five Core Principles of Lasallian Education.
I thank you for visiting this page, and I encourage you to explore our website to learn more about San Miguel High School, the Corporate Work Study Program, and our inspiring students. I invite you to join us at a robotics tournament, an athletic competition, or a liturgy to see our students in action. If you would like to schedule a visit, please just let us know! We delight in sharing our story, and we are excited to hear yours!
