Organization Description:

St. Mark's School is a four-year independent secondary school that, since its founding in 1865, has been closely associated with the Episcopal Church. Today, students represent a variety of religious traditions and faith perspectives. Ministry at St. Mark's reflects a commitment to the maintenance and valuing of the school's rich religious, racial, and cultural diversity. A year long course in religious studies is required of all students. This course requirement can be completed in either the 10th, 11th, or 12th grade. St. Mark's School is coeducational and enrolls 320 boarding and day students, all of whom are involved in preparation for entrance to highly competitive colleges and universities. A quarter of the students receive financial assistance.
