    The reason we first decided to send our kids to Marian had everything to do with the Academic standards that Marian sets in place and that the kids just naturally accept on a day to day basis! The standard for University enrollment is not only extremely high in terms of the percentage of students going on to a 4 year program. The variety of Universities is also very high and teaches the next year of students that virtually anywhere is in reach if they want to go for it!
    What we have learned over the last four years is the idea that these teachers here at Marian are ultimately and truly invested in each and every child’s lives. The teachers and staff at Marian cares for the child as an individual even more than the child as a student! What more can you ask for, from a parents point of view?

    Marian Catholic educates the whole student in a diverse, faith-filled environment. Our children have been challenged academically while being supported by the amazing faculty and staff. Both our children participate in marching band which has added tremendously to the high school experience. Our children have benefited immensely from their time at Marian Catholic and we can’t recommend it enough!
    As an international student from Vietnam, I am really welcomed by the community. I spent 3 years at this school, and I appreciate every moment. This school has many clubs and sports which will further richen a high school's student life. Teachers and staffs are always nice and helpful. They always try their best for students. My English was not good when I first came but they have been really patient teaching me. I highly recommend this school. Go Spartan!
