Academic Objectives

The hallmark of a Marian Catholic education is academic preparedness for college study. At Marian, students will learn to tackle rigorous academic projects, including college-level research papers that teach them how to use academic databases and literary criticism. They will learn to problem-solve in the context of academic inquiry, and they will develop their abilities to work with and lead a team of their peers. Marian Catholic students walk onto college campuses ready to be academic leaders in their lecture halls, in their study groups, and to their roommates and friends.
