Our Girls Come First.

Many families choose Marian because it provides an environment where girls come first, and academic excellence is viewed as the norm. Within Marian's Catholic setting, students encourage and support each other. They find confidence in their abilities, feel empowered to challenge themselves, and grow in their faith. They learn to lead from within. They learn lessons that last a lifetime.

According to a study commissioned by the National Coalition of Girls’ Schools (NCGS) titled “Women Graduates of Single-Sex and Coeducational High Schools: Differences in their Characteristics and the Transition to College”, graduates from all-girls’ schools:
  • 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.

Marian students, specifically:

  • 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. Given an overwhelming response by Marian students who wish to spend their school vacation participating in service activities, Marian will be 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; likely some of your neighbors, friends, or family members are Marian students or graduates who are achieving amazing accomplishments in our community. As a whole, the 118 graduates in the Class of 2019 were offered $13,428,860 million dollars in scholarships, an average of $113,800 each!

Joining the Marian Community

Marian’s students come from more than 50 communities in Oakland, Macomb, and Wayne counties. Often, girls come to Marian without knowing any other students. For that reason, programs have been developed to help students get to know each other, their teachers, and the Guidance staff.

In the spring, following registration, incoming freshmen are invited to The Freshmen "Friend-zy," a welcome party where they meet their future classmates and exchange contact information to keep in touch during the summer months. Summer enrichment courses and athletic camps held at Marian are another great way to get to know future classmates.

The school year begins with a freshman retreat, where students participate in group activities. New freshmen will be introduced to their "big sisters", members of the Junior Class who are specially chosen to guide them throughout their first year at Marian.

Marian communicates regularly with families through daily emails, and scheduled meetings with faculty and Guidance counselors.

Freshmen are encouraged to participate in a variety of clubs, teams, and co-curricular activities; they are empowered to take leadership roles within these organizations. Students make life-long friendships with their classmates and teachers in Marian’s close-knit community.
