St. Marks Episcopal Day School

St. Mark`s Episcopal Day School provides a unique academic foundation that prepares students for success in the 21st century. We engage in purposeful experiences in a dynamic environment using an integrated curriculum and collaborative connections with each other, our community, and the world.
Everything we do at St. Mark`s is intentional-from our academic programs and technology to our high-quality faculty and community-driven approach.
We`re committed to developing strong habits through creative and critical thinking and questioning for our students.
They gain deeper understanding by demonstrating what they know in more than one way and applying what they know in a variety of situations. There is only one way to get a genuine feel for what it's like to be a part of St. Mark's - and that is to visit us in person.
Nothing compares to meeting our faculty, watching our students learn and play, and joining us for a chapel service.
