Why Marian? 

A Marian education is an investment that lasts a lifetime. Outstanding academics, rich spirituality, and ongoing opportunities to develop confidence and leadership skills will guide you from eager freshman to independent, college-bound graduate.  You’ll meet girls from all over Omaha, expand your circle of friends and develop an enduring sisterhood with your class.

There is a place for everyone at Marian, and we can’t wait to have you here! To reserve your place in our incoming freshman class or to transfer to Marian, see the guidelines below.

Incoming Freshmen

In the Archdiocese of Omaha, all Catholic high schools administer a Placement Test on the second Saturday in January. At Marian, the placement exam results are used to award academic scholarships and place each student in appropriate freshman courses. Last year we awarded nearly 40 academic scholarships to incoming freshmen. If a student does not take the placement exam at Marian, she may need to take additional testing. 

If your student did not take the placement exam but would still like to enroll for their freshmen year, please reach out to Assistant Principal, Jen Christen.
