From Freshmen year to now, Marmion was a great fit for me. I would’ve never thought attending a Catholic Benedictine private high school, during middle school, but my parents and I really admired this school. The reason why this school fit for me was because of how it strives to get you out of your comfort zone and to try something new. I joined the choir which I’ve never participated in school prior to Marmion; now I’m the president of the chorus. Ive done musicals, Special Olympics, school supply drives, and so much more while at Marmion. There’s Mass offered here everyday and all school Mass every month. Plus many clubs that are offered; Spanish club, guitar club, etc. This school is unique in so many ways and it’s incredible that a school like this even exists.

I loved Marmion academy as it readily prepared me for college. It also allowed for me to create bonds and friendships with all sorts of people that will last me a lifetime. The rigorous academics challenged me every day throughout my high school career and has truly shaped me into the man I am today. There is little to change about the marmion community as every little pet makes it what it is. The only thing I would change would be the haircut inspection as that gets tedious sometimes. The strict and clear cut schedule teaches you to stay on task and get things done with max proficiency. Overall it has shows me and many men before me to be great people in society.
Marmion Academy is a fantastic school for all of its students. The teachers and staff are committed to ensuring the academic excellence of all pupils. The Benedictine monks keep the school throughly rooted in the Catholic Faith which allows the student body to express their religious identity in a safe environment. Marmion prepares all of its students for college through rigorous education.
