We inspire students to challenge what they believe, question what they know, and collaborate with different points of view.

Every experience at St. Mark’s is an opportunity to learn and grow. We balance our challenging curriculum with creative, exploratory programs that provide a fuller, richer education—satisfying individual curiosity and promoting a lifetime of independent thinking.

In service of the principles identified in our Mission Statement, St. Mark’s challenges students to:

  • Think critically and creatively to discover and make meaning.
  • Communicate skillfully in a variety of modes.
  • Collaborate effectively, demonstrating openness to diverse perspectives and new ideas.
  • Cultivate knowledge of self, including healthy habits of mind, body, and spirit.

These objectives orient the School’s educational program. Evident in all domains of school life, they are holistic objectives and serve as a reference point to inform decisions about the evolution of the academic and community life programs.
