Summary: MPS Students Are Excited about Learning.
Academics are the heart of a Marianapolis education, and each student thrives within a rigorous college preparatory course of study. Marianapolis nurtures students to become responsible and independent learners, as well as challenges students with an exciting and extensive program emphasizing breadth of intellectual exposure, depth of study, and significant out-of-class preparation.
Consisting of core traditional academic subjects, the curriculum reflects the richness and diversity of a broad spectrum of cultures. The curriculum fosters the development of critical and disciplined thinking, precise communication and scientific analysis, creative problem solving, careful and logical thinking, and understanding of the social, scientific, and political background of Western and non-Western civilization. At all grade levels, the curriculum encourages students to think critically, creatively, and independently, and to articulate ideas effectively.

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: Living at Marianapolis means making friends with not just classmates and roommates, but with your dorm parents and your teachers. The campus is absolutely beautiful, 150 acres (60 hectares) gorgeous tree and flower-filled acres. But it is the people who you will love the most.
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.
Clubs and Organizations
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.
