I am delighted that you are interested in St. Mark’s School! St. Mark’s, founded in 1865, is a college-preparatory boarding and day school, grades nine through twelve. Nestled upon 250 acres in the picturesque suburb of Southborough, Massachusetts, the school is only 25 miles from the abundant cultural and social opportunities in Boston.
The School’s outstanding faculty guides 360 students through a rigorous curriculum and a full program of athletic, artistic and spiritual activities, fostering a close and supportive community. St. Mark’s engages and motivates its talented and diverse student body by emphasizing academic excellence, developing values and character, and serving to the larger community. Class size averages 10 students with a student–faculty ratio of five to one. St. Mark’s offers more than 20 advanced courses, as well as independent study opportunities which range from working on the school's prize-winning electric vehicle to reading Luke’s Gospel in Ancient Greek. Graduates leave St. Mark’s exceptionally prepared to succeed at the highly selective colleges and universities to which they gain acceptance.
Typically, our IIIrd Form (ninth grade) program welcomes 65 students to campus each year. Subsequently, IVth Form (tenth grade) enrollment increases by approximately one-third to 90 students and Vth Form (eleventh grade) may bring in a few students if space allows. Campus visits for prospective families are unique in that students tour with St. Markers while parents tour with a faculty member. Visiting campus is the key to understanding just how connected we are as a community. In general, well over 80 percent of those who interview with us decide to apply to St. Mark’s [click here to set up a campus tour].
