How to Apply

Classmates, friends, and 'brothers.'

The San Miguel School exists first and foremost to offer a quality education to those in need. Priority is given to those students who, despite facing challenging circumstances, maintain an aspiration to learn.

San Miguel serves boys in grades 5 through 8. You should begin the application process when your son is in 4th grade.

Enrollment in grades 6 through 8 is dependent on a spot becoming available. Most students entering in 5th grade remain enrolled through graduation. If you are interested in enrolling your son for grades 6 through 8, we will happily add you to the waiting list to be contacted in the event a spot becomes available. 


Application Instructions:

1. Mail, fax, or email: 

  • Application
  • Copy of Birth Certificate
  • Most recent 1040 tax form
  • Most recent Report Card
  • Current IEP, if applicable

All applications must be accompanied by the family's most recent 1040 tax form. Tuition is based upon income and the amount a family is able to pay.

2. Two recommendations are required:
  • One recommendation from applicant’s current 4th grade teacher
  • One recommendation from any other teacher, social worker, guidance counselor or after school supervisor

Recommendation forms must be given to the child's teachers, who should mail, fax or email the forms directly to the school.

3. Tour and visit day at San Miguel

Once the application is completed, the child will be invited to spend the day at the school. The family will bring the child to school, meet with the admissions coordinator, and tour the school.

Acceptances are announced in mid-April. At that time, tuition will be discussed. Once the family has agreed to enroll their son at San Miguel, the Academic Dean will call to set up a home visit-the purpose of which is to build a strong working relationship.
