Summary: Within a rigorous college preparatory course of study, Marianapolis Prep nurtures students to become responsible and independent learners. The classroom environment is both intimate and intensive; faculty members challenge each student to achieve his or her best on assessments, through projects, and in classroom discourse.
Our academic curriculum reflects the richness and diversity of a broad spectrum of interests. The academic philosophy at Marianapolis fosters development of critical and disciplined thinking, precise communication and scientific analysis, creative problem solving, and understanding of the social, scientific, and political background of Western and non-Western civilizations. At all grade levels, the curriculum encourages students to think creatively and to articulate ideas effectively.
Every student takes at least six courses; some students, with special permission, may take six and a half or seven courses. Advisors work closely with students to design an appropriate plan of study. In selecting courses, students and advisors consider the intellectual challenge of each class as well as the student’s overall academic and extracurricular timetable. Advisors and students also discuss the student’s college aspirations, with support and advice from the College Counseling Office. Juniors and seniors, in particular, may pursue Marianapolis’ Advanced Placement offerings and Honors tiers of study. In addition to courses in English, history, math, science, and foreign language, broad offerings are available in the visual and performing arts.

Summary: Marianapolis is a warm, loving, community and our student life reflects that. We strive to offer activities, both intellectual and social, that appeal to all our students.
Whether you love chess or dancing, like to debate or make pottery, there is something, and usually several things, for each student to enjoy. There are movie nights, and board game nights, and dorm decoration competitions. There are bonfires and barbeques and ice cream socials, and traditions like Rake Day and Homecoming.
For our boarding population, there are trips to Boston and New York City for shopping, sporting events and shows and more. Our ESL students learn about American culture with monthly trips to educational and fun destinations.

Summary: Our residential and day students' lives are filled with activities, academics, sports and clubs. For our residential students, living with friends from the U.S. and around the world is one of our student's favorite part about Marianapolis. Dorm living promotes independence as students learn how to balance their studies with their social lives.
Living on campus you will have the option to participate in more activities. Whether it's a game of basketball or soccer outside, billiards or ping pong in the game room, or a trip to Boston for the day. Each weekend offers as least one outing as well as on campus fun, or you can stay behind and study--it's your choice.
Dorm Parents are faculty members who live in the dorms as guardians, role models, rule enforcers and mentors. They offer students a balance of steady support and guidance.

Summary: A Team for Each Student
At Marianapolis, students can choose between 13 varsity teams and 19 other athletic programs, honing their skills and building their strength with two hours of practice every afternoon. The less experienced athlete can compete at the junior varsity or third team level, while the varsity athlete is challenged by a more demanding practice and game schedule. Come to a game on campus and see the results for yourself - healthy, enthusiastic students and highly competitive teams.

Summary: Our curriculum standards, faculty advising program, and extracurricular opportunities ensure that our students will learn the skills they will need for success in college. By focusing on the personal and intellectual growth of each student, the faculty and the curriculum prepare students well for the rigors of higher education. Advisors, teachers, and deans help each student choose an appropriately challenging class schedule and advise about athletics, extracurricular activities, community service opportunities, and standardized tests – all of which play parts in the college admissions process. We know every student well and can offer each student individualized guidance to choose the school that will be the best fit for his or her talents, interests, and personality.
