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. SMHS exists to educate children of the working poor regardless of religious affiliation. San Miguel High School is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
