Saint Martin de Porres Academy


Saint Martin de Porres Academy is a faith-based, NativityMiguel middle school that provides a tuition-free, extended day education for underserved girls and boys from low-income families in the New Haven area. We are an independent Catholic school committed to a belief in the dignity and worth of every person. We strive to provide each child with a promising start in life and to equip them to fulfill their academic potential while achieving spiritual and social maturity. We welcome children of all faiths, races, and cultures.

The vision of St. Martin de Porres Academy is to break the cycle of poverty through education. Our goal is to provide urban boys and girls the opportunity to choose a quality education that will allow them to live up to their full potential. At the Academy, we promote more than academic excellence – we cultivate personal responsibility, social skills, and leadership, balanced with a strong spiritual foundation and a recognition of the need to serve others.

Our strength
is our twelve-year commitment to each student, and our unwavering belief in their unique gifts, talents, and potential.

Our promise
is that our students, supported by a twelve year commitment, will emerge as young men and women of competence, compassion, and a commitment to engage with the world and exert a positive influence.

Honor Code: I am a child of God. I will be truthful, honest, and respectful. I will work to the best of my ability to develop the talents God has given me. I will endeavor to share my gifts and talents to make my family, my school, and my community a place of justice and peace.
