Who we are…
Maryknoll School is a Catholic, college-preparatory day school serving students in grades K-12. We are a nurturing and welcoming community that values academic excellence, lifelong learning, service to others, and the courage to imitate Jesus by word and example. Our academic model is based upon the following metaphor - school should help students establish their own landscape. At Maryknoll School, we want our students to create their own worlds filled with promise and potential. Our school motto is Noblesse Oblige, “to whom much is given, much is expected.” To that end, we also encourage our students to foster a deep spiritual connection with one other and within their community. We believe that to be successful as an adult, students must learn independently, communicate effectively, understand how to set and meet goals, use technology efficiently and be financially and economically literate.
