Marmion Academy Reviews

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 liked the structure of Marmion, but the overall atmosphere was a little fake. Everyone acted like it was a great place and always happy, but they are in fact very harsh and do not miss a chance to yell. Although it is no longer Marmion Military Academy, many of the teachers still act like we are all the boarding school students that were there in 2003. The academy needs to better adapt to our changing culture.
very good overall. The teachers were hit or miss, but if you got a good one your academic experience would be outstanding! Some parts of the culture should change but overall very involved in the community and with service.
