St. Mark Roman Catholic School is an elementary school within the Diocese of Lexington, Kentucky serving boys and girls in grades Pre-K through 5.
Parents have the first and ultimate responsibility for the education of their child and, therefore the faculty and staff of St. Mark accept with great pride, but also a great sense of accountability and humility, the parents’ decision to entrust the education of their children at an early age to St. Mark School.
At St. Mark Catholic School, we believe that there is no greater duty than that of ensuring that each child of God receives the best possible education and formation for life.
St. Mark Catholic School accepts as its goals that it will provide the strongest education possible in the laws of God and the principles of the Catholic faith, while ensuring that each child receives a strong academic foundation in the basic subjects, the arts and in spiritual matters and Christian values.
St. Mark Catholic School believes that these goals can only be accomplished when all members of the school community children, parents, teachers and administrators hold themselves to the highest standards of behavior and conduct and live lives consistent with religious values.
