Signature Programs

In addition to our college prep curriculum, Marian students have the opportunity to participate in a variety of signature programs designed to expand and apply knowledge and skills inside and outside the classroom. We currently offer three signature programs: Humanities, STEM, Visual and Fine Arts.

Humanities Scholar

The Humanities Scholar Program is a course of study that students take to focus on intellectually and culturally rigorous classes that will foster a greater appreciation and understanding of the world. Students begin the program in their sophomore year with Introduction to the Humanities. After the introductory course, students will take five humanities electives and a capstone project to fulfill the curricular requirements. Additionally, there are service hours and other extracurricular requirements needed to complete the program.

Students will be assigned a faculty mentor to assist them in meeting all of the requirements. Students who successfully complete the program will earn a special notation on their diploma.

STEM Scholar

At Marian, we believe that all girls benefit from a solid foundation in math, science and engineering. Our students are engaged in a challenging, integrated curriculum that cultivates scientific and mathematical literacy while encouraging innovation and creative problem-solving. The STEM Signature program is a course of study that allows students to focus on intellectually rigorous classes that will foster an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math.

Students begin the program their sophomore year with chemistry class. After freshman year, students will take two STEM electives in addition to their core work in science and math. Students who successfully complete the program will earn a special notation on their diploma.

Fine and Performing Arts Scholar

Research has shown that the arts promote positive development in academic, social and emotional areas. Marian students have the opportunity to explore a number of courses, clubs and extracurricular activities that provide a foundation in the visual and performing arts. These will allow your daughter’s creativity to flourish as she discovers and cultivates her artistic gifts.

The Fine & Performing Arts Scholar Program creates the opportunity to explore a number of courses, clubs and extracurricular activities that provide a foundation in the visual and performing arts. Research has shown that the arts promote positive development in academic, social and emotional areas. Students begin the program in their freshman or sophomore year after the completion of Art Foundations (previously Art I), Concert Choir, Band or Strings. Students will take seven semesters of Fine Arts. Students who successfully complete the program will earn a special notation on their diploma.
