How can we afford Marian?
We recognize that a Marian education is a significant investment and do not want tuition to be a barrier for any student. We believe that socio-economic diversity enriches our community and is critical to our mission. There is something special at Marian and we want you to be a part of it.
In 1955, when the Servants of Mary opened Marian High School, they made the promise that no girl would be turned away for financial reasons. Today, we remain committed to that promise.
