About Our School

Since the founding of Marian Catholic High School, its mission has been and continues to be developing students spiritually, morally, academically, and socially by integrating the teachings of Jesus Christ with a value-centered curriculum. In a safe family atmosphere, the faculty and administration, challenge students not only to reach their highest academic potential, but also to adopt a disciplined work ethic necessary to become contributing self-sufficient citizens who give witness to the Catholic Faith.

  • Our family atmosphere provides a safe, caring educational environment
  • Exceptional Education resulting in post-secondary scholarship opportunities
  • Small class sizes and individual attention allow all learners to thrive in our Christ-centered curriculum.

How we support students with college and career counseling
