For almost 50 years, Saint Mark’s High School has been educating young men and women to be leaders of the church and the world whose faith in God and service to others models excellence, humility and integrity. But how does this Catholic, college-preparatory high school prepare its students for a life after graduation, when they leave the comfort of home and head off to college?
1. With its college-campus feel
As you travel the tree-lined driveway into the Saint Mark’s High School campus, you can’t help but feel inspired by the appearance of athletic fields and buildings that sit on almost 40 acres of rolling hills. This is a campus that looks more like that of a small college than a high school, providing an expansive and beautiful setting for the many and varied activities of the students for whom Saint Mark’s is home.
2. With its rigorous academic program
The college-campus feel goes hand in hand with Saint Mark’s broad and rigorous college preparatory curriculum, which prepares its students for success at colleges and universities throughout the nation. On average, nearly 100 percent of Saint Mark’s students move on to institutions of higher education from community college to the Ivy League.
3. With its array of activities
Demanding academics are only one part of a well-rounded high school experience. It is the co-curricular activities that bring the campus to life. Saint Mark’s offers its students an impressive array of clubs, activities and sports, all of which are designed to enhance the development of the whole person. The large campus allows Saint Mark’s to offer its students 24 sports, a selection that is guaranteed to meet the interests of most young men and women. This is where they learn the value of teamwork and sportsmanship, while advancing their leadership potential and developing their athletic abilities.
4. With its well-rounded approach
Saint Mark’s aims to holistically educate their students. With rigorous college preparatory academics in the classroom and a beautiful campus that feels like a college, Saint Mark’s eases students into higher education while making their high school experience unique and one to remember.
Saint Mark’s, a co-educational, college preparatory Catholic high school, inspires young men and women to create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others, by modeling faith, excellence, humility and integrity.
Join them on Sunday, October 28th from noon – 3 p.m. for an Open House. There will be interactive tours, information sessions and opportunities to meet their faculty, staff and student body.â€‹
