School Notes

  • St. Mark's School educates young people for lives of leadership and service. Founded in 1865 as an intentionally small residential community, the School challenges its students to develop their particular analytic and creative capabilities by both inspiring their academic and spiritual curiosity and kindling their passion for discovery. We value cooperation over self-interest, and we encourage each person to explore his or her place in the larger world beyond our campus.

School Reviews

St. Mark's does many things well: The school fosters and encourages an environment where diversity is embraced, students have voice and recognition, and relationships are strong. The generally positive atmosphere represents the student body, which is full of many different types of people. The many opportunities to pursue academic interests both inside and outside the school makes SM a great prep school. Lastly, the athletic teams value perseverance and hard work over winning, and the coaches are very skilled.
