The mission of Marist School is to form the whole person in the image of Christ through instruction grounded in religious values, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and the spirit of the Society of Mary.
This mission is advanced through communal pursuit of excellence in academic, religious, extracurricular, leadership, and service programs.
The unique mission of Marist School to form the whole person in the image of Christ is created by blending three distinct traditions: the pursuit of academic excellence, the heritage of Catholic education, and the spirit of the Society of Mary.
As an academic community, Marist School maintains excellence in teaching and high expectations for learning in an environment that values scholarship and achievement.
Marist offers its students a curriculum that cultivates extensive knowledge and academic skills, intellectual acumen, formation of character, aesthetic appreciation, and physical well-being, in order to prepare them for college studies, civic leaderships, and the lifelong pursuit of truth, goodness, and beauty.
As a Catholic school, Marist is guided by the educational mission and doctrinal teaching of the Catholic Church.
Respecting religious diversity, Marist welcomes a significant number of students from other traditions.
Through formal instruction, common worship, and religious activities, Marist assists students in forming their consciences by emphasizing the dignity and integrity of the individual, the primacy of transcendent values and Jesus' call to love and serve others, especially the poor.
