Student life at Marian High School is a unique and rewarding experience. While the emphasis at Marian is on academics, all students are strongly encouraged to include athletic, fine arts, social and community service activities in their student experience. These activities provide opportunities to deepen their faith, as well as develop their individual talents and interests, leadership potential and social skills. They provide students with venues to develop as an individual, to form friendships and to have fun.
We want to assure every student at Marian is safe and secure. We at Marian check the background of Employees, Vendors, Volunteers (Including Host Parents..)
