Beyond St. Mark's
The average student will spend 30% of his or her week inside the walls of our school, which gives us a tremendous responsibility to nurture and prepare each student for life after St. Mark’s.
As an Early Childhood to 8th grade school, St. Mark’s is committed to providing each student with opportunities to continue their educational journeys beyond middle school by helping students and families determine their “best fit” high school options. At St. Mark’s, the high school application process is a team effort. Our Headmaster and Middle School Head partner with your family to identify high school options that are an ideal match, honoring your child’s gifts and achievements.
After graduating from St. Mark’s Episcopal School, students continue to experience success at a small, Christian, private high school, while others are ready for a change and seek a high school with larger class sizes and a bigger campus. At St. Mark’s, we celebrate the uniqueness of each child, and our primary goals for high school placement are:
To assist families in finding the choices that are better suited for individual success in high school rather than pushing families to apply and enroll in only a small number of highly selected schools.
To help students find the right match based on student strengths and needs rather than the reputation of the high school
