At St. Mark’s we are committed to the growth and development of the whole child. This begins with the belief that children are created in the image and likeness of God. They are not only test takers, the future workforce or little troublemakers. They are beings with minds that need nurturing hearts that need affection, and wills that need strengthening in truth. As part of the academic rigor we encourage our students to find joy in learning and the fellowship of the student body.
The curriculum gives equal space to the Humanities, the Arts and the Sciences. It is designed to provide each student with the sound academic preparation that would allow them to apply to the leading high schools in the city.
In class they are reminded of their God given potential and in chapel they are drawn to the awareness of God’s love and concern for their welfare. As stewards of God’s children, we also train them in making health decisions. Life generally presents itself as a series of choices and our students must learn to choose that which is good for their welfare and pleasing to God.
