Saint Mark's School - A Catholic IDEALS School

Saint Mark's School is delighted to announce that it has been selected to become a Catholic IDEALS School!

Innovative  Differentiated  Enriched  Active  Leadership  Spiritual

This remarkable program, recognizing the God-given potential of each student, is informed by the principles of Top 20 Training and Dr. Howard Gardner's Multiple Intelligences Theory. As such, it leads to the following:

      • well-rounded students whose academic strengths are matched by their social/emotional development
      • conscientious students who can identify and solve problems in their own lives and in the world around them
      • empowered parents who possess the tools needed to help their children thrive

Saint Mark's process of becoming a Catholic IDEALS School will include:

      • three years of ongoing professional development with Top 20 Training
      • ongoing consulting with IDS and Top 20 Training for faculty and staff
      • formational opportunities for families
"Recognizing its exceptional capacity for developing the social, emotional, intellectual and spiritual potential of its students, parents, faculty and staff, we are excited to accept Saint Mark's School as a Catholic IDEALS School."Paul Bernabei, founder and author of Top 20 Training
"Though we have just begun our partnership with Top 20 Training at Saint Mark's, I have already observed students who are more inspired to actively explore knowledge, develop social and individual responsibility, and engage the demanding challenges of the world around us. Applying these concepts and evolving into a Catholic IDEALS School will benefit our students, staff and families by keeping us engaged and passionate in a culture of learning and positivity."Meg Groshens, 3rd Grade Teacher
