Strong sees the power of an all-girl education.

While our students and alumnae can attest to the power of an all-girl education. Research proves it. An all-girl high school education creates more confident, more independent and more successful women. And that leads to a stronger future.
  • Have higher self-esteem*.Graduates of all-girls’ schools rate their confidence in mathematics and computer science 10 percentage points higher than those of their peers from co-ed schools.
  • Are more interested in non-traditional subjects such as science and math*. Graduates from all-girls’ schools are three times more likely than their coed peers to major in engineering.
  • Are intellectually curious, serious about their studies, more self-reliant, and higher achievers*.Women graduates from single-sex high schools outscored their coed peers in composite SAT scores by 43 points.
  • Are empowered to become leaders, both inside and outside the school.Recently, Marian alumnae were valedictorians of their classes at University of Notre Dame and University of Detroit-Mercy.
  • Explore Marian and the world outside through a variety of rigorous course offerings, co-curricular opportunities, athletics, and outreach activities.Many Marian students wish to spend their school vacation participating in service activities, so Marian conducts up to three international mission trips yearly.
  • Excel in the classroom, on the field, on the stage, and in all areas. Just ask around or ask google. You’ll be impressed to learn all the amazing accomplishments Marian students and graduates are achieving in the community and the world beyond.

Strong welcomes all.

Since Marian draws students from 45 communities, we have programs to help the girls build friendships and fellowship.  Our Freshman Friendzy allows girls an opportunity to meet their classmates and exchange information. We have a Big Sister/Little Sister program pairs each freshman with a junior Big Sis. We encourage all the girls to get involved in sports and extracurriculars at the beginning of the school year. Parents will also find many opportunities to volunteer, lead, participate, pray, cheer and show school spirit. 

Both student and parents will make new friends and create lifelong friendships.

Strong owns her future

Perhaps you can’t be 17 again. But you can feel like it. When you reconnect with Marian, with old classmates and current students, you’ll be surprised how young it will make you feel. Whether your hair was a bouffant, teased, permed, long or in a sloppy bun… Whether you listened to folk rock, hard rock, alternative, R&B, rap or grunge…Whether you wore your plaid skirt long or rolled it short… Styles come and go, but the heart of Marian is still the same. And if you have a little place in your heart for Marian, for the girl you used to be, and how it shaped you in part to be the woman you are now, we invite you to come back. Get involved. Volunteer your time. Share your wisdom. And give what you can to ensure Marian will be strong for generations to come.
