Graduate SUCCESS

The Graduate Success Program provides multiple services for the continued growth and development of our students. High school placement and guidance through the college process and other post-secondary options are the foundations of the Graduate Success Program. Students are assisted in exploring a variety of post-secondary options, including college and the military, as well as trade schools and certification programs, which have strong job placement opportunities.  School visits, test preparation, tutoring, mentoring, wellness support, career counseling, and assistance with internship placement are integral parts of the Program.

In addition to these ongoing services, the Graduate Success Program provides up to $5,000 of financial support to all San Miguel Academy graduates in secondary programs. While our graduates receive significant tuition assistance from financial aid and supplemental sources, there remain gaps in tuition costs and ancillary expenses. 

Through our Graduate Success Program, San Miguel Program stays involved in our students’ lives. The Graduate Success Program assists 1st generation learners and their parents by helping them to navigate the high school and college admissions process, including discussions about finances, the importance of education, and setting realistic goals for their child.

ISEE Preparation Classes

San Miguel Academy students participate in review classes for the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination.) ISEE is a requirement for admission into  independent day and boarding school. Students in all grades work on test preparation with the help of Test Innovators, an online program. This program allows students to take practice exams, which are then analyzed and individualized preparation plans are created for each student. Students are given time in school and have access to the program outside of school as well.
