Application Process

Importantly, the components can be submitted independently of each other, which gives families the flexibility to complete the application over time. 

A Better Chance (ABC)

Since 1985, Marist has been a member of A Better Chance (ABC), a national school referral service noted for its work with students of color. More than 30 ABC Scholars currently attend Marist, and nearly 150 scholars have graduated to date. For candidates referred to Marist by A Better Chance, please review our helpful ABC Checklist. Importantly, some application items come directly to Marist from A Better Chance, while others are specific to Marist and require the prospective family to complete and submit.

This obligation to build a community of inclusion is based on Sacred Scripture, the teachings of the Catholic Church, and the spirit and traditions of the Society of Mary. All members of the Marist School community are responsible for advancing an understanding of and a respect for diversity.
