Saint Martin de Porres High School is a private high school in the St. Clair-Superior neighborhood on the East Side of Cleveland, Ohio.


Saint Martin de Porres High School was established in 2004 as a part of the Cristo Rey Network of high schools, the original being Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago.[1]

Book about the Cristo Rey model[edit]

In January 2008, Loyola Press released a book titled More than A Dream: How One School's Vision is Changing the World.[2] The author G.R. Kearney, formerly himself a volunteer teacher at a Cristo Rey Jesuit High School, documents the unlikely development of the Cristo Rey model and its remarkable success throughout the United States.

Campus ministry & service[edit]

There are liturgical celebrations throughout the year which are a part of the spiritual program for all students. In the first three years all students experience a day-long retreat, and in senior year an overnight retreat. Additionally, Kairos and men’s/women’s overnight retreats are optional.

All students are taught the Christian spirituality of service and participate in service-learning projects in the outside community. Also, special immersion opportunities are offered, as in Cleveland, West Virginia, New Orleans, and El Salvador. Other voluntary projects include the St. Philip Neri Hot meal Program, the Store Front Drop-in Center, United Cerebral Palsy, and St. Clair Superior Development Corporation. In addition, some school clubs include a service component in their activities.[3]
