Laying the Foundation for a Life Without Limits
In 1995, San Miguel School Chicago opened in a convent dining room with four teachers, 18 middle schoolers, a $50,000 grant and a founding mission to transform lives through faith-based education in the Lasallian tradition.
Today—25 years and 500+ San Miguel graduates later—we’re an indispensable resource in the heart of Chicago’s vibrant but underserved Back of the Yards community.
Our alumni have graduated from high school at twice the rate of their neighborhood peers—and more than half of these San Miguel success stories have continued their education at colleges and universities. Many are the first in their families to realize the dream of a higher education.
