The San Miguel School of Providence: Our Mission

The San Miguel School, a Lasallian middle school, provides a high quality, holistic education for boys from diverse and challenging backgrounds.

In a caring, safe, and structured environment, we foster a spirit of mutual respect and brotherhood among all students. We walk with our students and their families throughout their educational journey at San Miguel and beyond.

Inspired by the pillars of faith, service, and community, each “Miguel Man” is encouraged to learn, to serve, and to grow to reach his full potential.


Our History

Founded in 1993 by Bro. Lawrence Goyette, The San Miguel School of Providence has become a model for 13 like schools across the nation. From a small, dedicated staff of three serving a school of fourteen boys, San Miguel has grown in size since its humble beginning. The school was founded in an attempt to address what was sometimes lacking in education, particularly the structure, support, and positive one-on-one relationships between students and teachers. Now serving 64 boys in grades five through eight, San Miguel strives to ‘touch the minds and hearts' of its students, nurturing the ‘whole' boy in a safe and enriching environment.
