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 the following metaphor- school should help students establish their own landscape. At Maryknoll we want our students to create their own worlds filled with promise and potential. Our school mottos is Noblesse Oblige- to whom much is given, much is expected. To that end we also expect all of our graduates to have a deep spiritual connection to each other and 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.
