Getting Ready for the School Year

I hope the summer months are treating you well. St. Mark’s faculty and staff are preparing for an outstanding 2019–2020 school year and look forward to seeing you soon. On this site is information designed to help ensure the smoothest and most positive start for everyone.

  • Orientation for new families is scheduled for Wednesday, September 4, beginning at 8:30 a.m.
  • For returning families, registration is on Friday, September 6, tentatively between 9:00 and 11:00 a.m.

Laura Appell-Warren and I look forward to hosting a reception in our home for new parents on Wednesday.

The St. Mark’s faculty devote considerable time during the summer months to continuing their own professional growth. Some take graduate courses, some travel both domestically and overseas, and some attend conferences. Whether in Southborough or elsewhere, our faculty are honing their skills, expanding their knowledge, refining existing courses, and developing new courses. I am continually impressed by the intellectual vibrancy and joy in learning that I see among my colleagues during June, July, and August! I know that these qualities facilitate inspirational teaching, both inside and outside the classroom, for your sons and daughters in the coming academic year.

As you look ahead to the 2019–2020 school year, we want to make sure that you have all the information you need, in particular about the opening of school activities. The St. Mark’s website is filled with helpful information, including this "Getting Ready" section devoted to the opening of school. The Admission Office stands at the ready to answer questions new students and parents might have (, 508-786-6118), and the Dean of Students Office stands at the ready to answer questions returning students and parents might have (, 508-786-6273). With all best wishes for the rest of the summer.
