At Marion Catholic High School, our mission is to hold our students to high academic standards within the context of a caring, Catholic Christian community. Our attention is on the student and each individual’s general welfare. Our school promotes the young person along with their parents or guardian to explore all possibilities for a complete education tailored to the student’s needs. With an outstanding faculty that cares about the student, it helps to promote a climate for each individual to experience success as they prepare for their post high school education and eventually take their place in a fruitful society.
The formation of Marion's Catholic schools first began when three sisters from the community of the Sisters of Charity, started the educational system in 1879. Followed soon after in 1882 by the first high school graduating class. The building now serves as the St. Mary Grade School and sits behind the church on North Main Street in downtown Marion, Ohio. As the number of students grew, the need to expand became clear and in 1957, Marion Catholic High School was built.
Marion's Catholic schools have been providing quality education for students in our community for over 130 years. We are a diversified school serving a wide ranging socio-economic population and from both Catholic and non-Catholic backgrounds. Marion Catholic is committed to providing our students an environment for expanding their knowledge, growing their faith, and extending their talents by serving their community.
Marion Catholic Junior/Senior High School is fully accredited by the State of Ohio department of Education and the Diocese of Columbus Through the Ohio Catholic School Accrediting Association.
