Program Description

Saint Martin de Porres Academy's holistic approach to education emphasizes experiential learning, spiritual grounding and rigorous academics. This approach cultivates character and integrity and equips students with the skills they need to succeed and to become agents of change in their communities. We provide tuition-free, extended day education for children from low-income families in the New Haven area of Connecticut.
