Special Programs

Saint Mark’s School, a Catholic IDEALS School, recognizes that many, perhaps most, schools offer very “ho-hum” pedagogy. Our staff, however, engages the students in a wide variety of ways. For the most part, this happens every day in each classroom. In addition to unique and interesting, what we call “purple cow”, curriculum, we also offer a variety of special programs for students to learn and grow. Some of these are part of traditions ongoing for years. Others, not described on this site, arise annually when opportunities present themselves.
