At Marian Catholic, if you are willing to give it your all, our dedicated faculty and staff will meet you where you are and help you reach your full potential. Our students thrive in a community where they are both loved and tested: in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, and as Christians. As a Catholic, college preparatory high school founded on the Dominican Pillars of Prayer, Study, Community, and Preaching, Marian Catholic provides every student with the opportunity to achieve their personal best. Will you accept the challenge?


Marian Catholic holds our students to the highest standards. Our culture of excellence begins with our competitive academics but extends to our winning athletic teams, accomplished performers, and nationally recognized band. Regardless of a student's interests and talents, they will have the opportunity to push themselves, form friendships, and excel. 


Marian Catholic builds character through faith. Through service and prayer, we encourage our students to wrestle with difficult questions, build a relationship with God, and fortify their values. Our diversity allows students to befriend and learn from peers of different backgrounds and cultures. Our students graduate with the integrity, the strength, and the morality to navigate adulthood. 


Marian Catholic students have a lifetime advantage. From the first day, our college counselors work with our students to find the right college or university to achieve their goals. Our students can earn college credit in over 20 subject areas. Experiential learning opportunities extend the classroom into the real world. All of our graduates leave ready, with the educational and personal skills needed to outperform their peers in college and beyond.
