Education has always been an integral element of the Marianist mission. The Marianist Province of the United States sponsors or co-sponsors 18 secondary schools and three universities. Combined, these institutions educate about 28,000 young people every year.

Marianist educators are guided by the five “Characteristics of Marianist Education:”

• Educate for Formation in Faith
• Provide an Integral, Quality Education
• Educate in Family Spirit
• Education for Service, Justice, Peace and the Integrity of Creation
• Educate for Adaptation and Change

“Religion is not taught; it is communicated. Religion is instilled more deeply in the spirits and hearts of the students through the atmosphere that permeates the school than through teaching.” 

Blessed William Joseph Chaminade, founder of the Marianist Family.
