The Marist Difference
Excellence in academics is not just about our students’ impressive test scores, small class sizes, full schedules, or the fact that our graduation rate is above 98%. With over 500 motivated and involved students, we also offer the full high school experience. This includes sports, clubs, theatre, music, fine arts, photography and all the most memorable aspects of high school: homecoming, prom, dances, talent shows and more.
So what will you do at Marist?
You Will Grow in Faith
At Marist Catholic High School, our faith is woven into everything we do, animating our mission to be a Christ-centered, welcoming community committed to academic excellence and preparing students to lead and serve others.
With Catholic Christian faith as the foundation, education is a process that pursues wisdom and truth. Our curriculum and retreats are characterized by a palpable sense of self-discipline, graciousness, charity and hope. A Marist education inspires students to become moral, caring and competent leaders who, with a sense of joy and zeal, place their gifts at the service of the common good and pursue a social order that is attentive to the welfare and rights of others.
Marist’s Christian Service Program seeks to move the classroom discussion of the personal and social components of a Christian lifestyle into real-life instances of service and ministry. Students are directed to service projects that promote works for justice and peace.
