Guided by the spirit of the Society of Mary, we are in constant pursuit of our mission to form the whole person in the image of Christ—through daily prayer, monthly school-wide Mass and prayer services, annual spiritual retreats for every grade, domestic and international mission trips, and our comprehensive community service program. While Marist is a Catholic school, we welcome student of all faiths.
Consistently rated a top Atlanta Catholic high school, Marist School is a dynamic, college-preparatory community of 1,100 boys and girls in grades 7 through 12, representing 80 zip codes across the metro area. Marist combines a high school with a fully integrated middle school, known as our Foundations Program. Our school offers a unique blend of traditional classroom instruction and experiential learning that equips students with the skills to thrive in college and beyond.
Year after year, families choose Marist School. Whether you are researching options for your child’s education, seeking a new academic environment, or moving to Atlanta, we invite you to learn what makes Marist so special.
Our commitment to providing a world-class education that prepares students to lead and serve with compassion, integrity, and a sense of purpose continually resonates with parents. Nearly all Marist graduates go on to pursue higher educational opportunities. Many remain in-state, attending flagship schools like The University of Georgia and Georgia Tech. Others pursue degrees at public universities and private colleges throughout the Southeast. Some go even farther afield, attending schools in the Catholic tradition like Notre Dame, Georgetown, and Boston College or other highly selective schools such as Stanford, MIT, Duke, and the Ivy League institutions.
Time and again, parents tell us Marist is their second home. Our deep sense of community and the strong bonds formed among students, parents, and with faculty, staff, and coaches continue long after graduation. With more than 10,000 alumni, the Marist School extended family truly reaches across the country and around the world.
Marist parents are proud of our legacy as Atlanta’s oldest Catholic school. Located in the vibrant city of Brookhaven, Ga., the diverse Marist School of today took root 120 years ago in downtown Atlanta as a Catholic military school for boys. Certainly, much has changed since then, but our passion for helping students realize their full potential remains the same.

“I love the community at Marist. When I walked on campus for the first time in 9th grade,
I noticed how differently people treat each other here. I found an incredible group of friends and met countless other amazing people.”
