San Miguel School-gary Comer Campus says

Established in the fall of 2002, the Gary Comer Campus brought the San Miguel model to the west side of Chicago. For years, the founders, board, and donors of San Miguel had expressed the desire to duplicate the success of the San Miguel model in another community in Chicago, but funds were limited for such an endeavor. In 2002, Lands' End founder, Gary Comer, presented a generous and bold $1.2 million grant to San Miguel to start a San Miguel School in the Austin neighborhood of Chicago. Seven years later, the San Miguel School - Gary Comer Campus has become a beacon of hope on the West Side. The Gary Comer Campus currently offers classes for 5th, 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. Students are accepted based on academic and financial need. During the 2007-2008 academic year, 94% of these students qualified for the government's free and reduced lunch program.
