NHL, Yale Come Calling for SM Hockey Players

St. Mark's has a long tradition of ice hockey success, with 29 league titles and eight New England championships over 120 years of the sport at the School. There have been many St. Mark's skaters, young men and women, who have gone on to play at colleges and universities. A few have seen action on junior, national, Olympic, and professional teams, and a trio of Lions went on to NHL careers. Now two more St. Mark's hockey veterans will have that chance.

Brantwood Camp and St. Mark's: A Century of Collaboration

1920 was a watershed year for St. Mark's School in many ways. For the first time, a process for financial aid support was introduced: meager perhaps by today's standards, but clearly a step in the right direction. That year also saw a significant renovation of Belmont Chapel, expanding it to accommodate increased enrollment and dedicating it as a memorial to those St. Markers who had served in the Great War. Another memorial to the fallen would have an even more substantial impact on the School and its philosophy. Today, St. Mark's proudly asserts in its mission statement that it "educates young people for lives of leadership and service." It was in 1920 that St. Mark's introduced its very first formal program of community service and outside leadership opportunity, when it began a collaborative relationship with Brantwood Camp in Peterborough, New Hampshire.

Innovative Learning: Professional Development This Summer

The summer of 2020 has been anything but ordinary, but at St. Mark's the faculty remain committed to professional development during their time away from the classroom.

Memorial Day Week: Recalling Their Sacrifice

The first St. Mark's graduation ceremony, really a formal Baccalaureate service in Southborough's St. Mark's Episcopal Church where seven young men received diplomas (and none of them would go on to college), was held on Saturday, June 9, 1866. One month before, more than 300 miles to the west and north, in the small town of Waterloo, New York, a community-wide event took place, with businesses closing and the residents decorating the graves of their Civil War dead with flowers and flags. It was the first celebration of what would come to be called Memorial Day.
