Marian students continuously encounter opportunities to follow Christ’s example of service throughout their time in our school community.

This happens primarily because of the very way in which the educational mission of Marian is different than that of secular schools. The school imparts a solid understanding of the major doctrines and practices of the Catholic Church and the central nature of serving others as Christ served us in the most sacrificial form of His death on the cross and continued in the celebration of the Eucharist.


The graduate:

has studied Scriptures and encountered the person of Jesus Christ as He is presented in the New Testament, and has a basic understanding of the Church's teaching about Jesus Christ and His redeeming mission;

has begun to take responsibility for personal faith development, has experienced the presence of God, in private prayer, on a retreat, in liturgical prayer, or in service to others;

has begun to understand the relationship between faith in Jesus and being a servant to others in all we do as Christians;

has heard and responded to the call to service in a variety of ways within the school community and beyond our school campus;

has begun to appreciate the Eucharist as the source and summit Christian community;

and has continued to form a Christian conscience through evaluation of moral choices, and can reason through moral issues with increasing clarity.
