While academics are critical to the success of a high school student, clubs and extracurricular activities also play a vital role in the development of skills that serve as a foundation for a well-rounded young woman as she graduates from Marian.

Clubs at Marian provide an opportunity for students to become involved in areas of interest to them, and allow them to explore interests they never imagined they had, providing them with skills they can apply to everyday life. Throughout this process of growth and discovery, Marian girls form new bonds through the sisterhood that comes with being part of a club.

Beyond these foundational benefits, colleges and universities want to know and understand what your daughter(s) has learned both inside and outside the classroom. Clubs represent great opportunities for different students to collaborate toward a common goal or passion.
