    It’s a very diverse and substantial community. The teachers there are extremely helpful and patient with students, that are in need of help. I recommend joining clubs and sports, such as, Equestrian, International Club, Art Club, and Fencing, because it’s not often every high school offers or provides these opportunities for students to join, which is why this makes Marian Catholic High School a great to learn and explore!

    I had an incredible experience at Marian Catholic! There were lots of ways to get involved with the school and it set the foundation for the leadership roles I held in college and even after college. Academically, I found myself ahead of many of my peers in college, as did many of my friends who graduated Marian with me. It was great to be part of a close knit community like the one at Marian while also being exposed to a diverse student body.
    Marian is the best school anyone can send their kids to. It is absolutely amazing! The teachers all help you whether it be coming early or staying late, answering your emails at night or really early. The diversity is amazing! The sport coaches try their hardest to be with you every step of the way and they are so understanding of anyone’s personal needs. I feel so blessed to be able to go here. It is a place like no other. No one can tell me differently.
