This mission is advanced through communal pursuit of excellence in academic, religious, extracurricular, leadership, and service programs.

The school is a vibrant, faith-filled, Catholic community with rich traditions.  Co-educational since 1976, Marist has a robust enrollment today of approximately 1,100 students in grades 7 through 12.  Marist faculty have, on average, 19 years of teaching experience, and 85% hold advanced degrees in their fields.
