A major factor in the success of Marian’s educational model is small class sizes. Each student receives individualized attention within the classroom, as well as from after school mentors and tutors. Marian has the capacity to educate 80 students during a given school year.

What does it take to be a Marian girl?
She must be:
- In grade 5th, 6th, 7th or 8th
- Of average or above average ability
- Eligible for a free or reduced-fee lunch program
- A girl of promise, capable of meeting the eligibility requirements of a college preparatory high school
- Supported by at least one caring adult who is actively involved in her education
- In need of a challenge or falling behind in a traditional school setting
The extended school day (7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.) allows ample time for students to complete their homework assignments and participate in enrichment activities. As a result, school requirements during family time are minimal. Supportive, caring adults will make sure that the Marian girl has reliable transportation, balanced nutrition, adequate sleep, clean uniform, and encouragement in her school experience.
Marian faculty ask that the caregiver sign off on the student’s weekly family folder, perform two hours of volunteer service a month and attend two parent-teacher-student conferences a year.
In keeping with its mission, Marian Middle School offers a private school education to adolescents from economically disadvantaged families. The tuition is nominal and based on the family’s financial situation. Marian’s tuition fees are significantly augmented by grants, gifts, fundraisers, and the generosity of corporate and individual donors.
A Day In the Life of a Marian Girl
Adhering to the NativityMiguel model of education, these young girls commit to an intense 10-month, 10-hour schedule, where they develop critical thinking, problem solving, leadership and life skills that will take them successfully into the next chapter of their career. The school year begins in early August and ends in late May. Students also attend one Academic Saturday each month.
