School Notes

  • 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.
  • Marist's dynamic curriculum is experiential and interdisciplinary, balancing leading-edge innovation in pedagogy and technology with a comprehensive course of study that engages students with the spirituality and heritage of a Catholic education.
  • Beyond academics, students have opportunities to explore their interests and passions through athletic and arts programs, robotics, campus ministry offerings, and many other extracurricular activities.
  • Marist students learn to be faith-filled servant leaders by providing at least 40 hours of direct service to others before graduation and learning to dialogue with those different from themselves.
