St. Mark’s educational philosophy is to advance three core values: intellect, character, and leadership*. By advancing these core values in a developmentally appropriate method, St. Mark’s provides an education of consequence, sending into the world individuals who are prepared to make a meaningful difference in whatever arena they choose to focus their talents.
Our commitment to innovation as well as to interdisciplinary, experiential and community based learning, within this philosophy, is what sets us apart. As a result we have developed various Signature Programs for St. Markers.
