San Miguel High School 6601 S. San Fernando Rd. Tucson, AZ 85756

Phone: 520-294-6403 Fax: 520-294-6417 E-mail: Web Address:

San Miguel High School, a Catholic, Lasallian learning community empowering youth from underserved families, nurtures a Christian spirit and integrates rigorous academics with practical experience, thereby transforming students to be prepared for college and career. San Miguel High School opened in 2004 in order to create a learning community where students from families of limited financial means have the opportunity to develop to their full potential. San Miguel is located in Tucson’s economically depressed south side where 50% of adult residents do not have a high school education and 42% of San Miguel’s neighbors earn less than $25,000 per year. At San Miguel, students take a full college preparatory course load while simultaneously holding internships, working in corporations and earning nearly sixty percent of their school tuition. The Corporate Internship Program (CIP) at San Miguel gives students the opportunity to form new identities as citizens and professionals who have a bright future.

On Friday, April 29 we were privileged to have Brother Alvaro Superior General visit our school. Also visiting that day were Brother Robert, Brother Stan and our former principal, Brother Nick. Bishop Kicanas celebrated mass with the Brothers and the student was a great day!
