ST. MARK’s highly regarded Middle School program continues to focus on personal and academic excellence, with cross-curricular learning in math, English, literature, science, social studies, Spanish and religion.
Students attend classes taught by departmentalized faculty members. Homeroom teachers focus on the development of the whole individual on a spiritual, personal and educational level, fostering a life-long love of learning. Middle school students receive a tailored academic experience through their choice of electives in Art and Music, as well as leveled mathematics courses offering advanced math options for students who meet the criteria.
Critical thinking is emphasized as students are challenged to dig deeper into concepts in preparation for high school. Many of our middle school students participate in one of more of our enrichment activities and clubs, including CYO sports, band, choir, debate, Catholic Math League, the Shakespeare Club, Battle of the Books, and more.
