All Parents - We Need Your Feedback on the 1:1 Technology!

As we close Year One of our 1:1 Technology integration, we are gathering feedback from teachers, students, and parents on what worked and what needs improvement. Your opinion is SO IMPORTANT as we plan next year! Please take a few minutes to complete the Parent Survey linked below. If you could complete this survey by May 1st, we would really appreciate it!

2018-2019 TUITION SHOULD BE PAID IN FULL

Reminder to all families -- tuition accounts should be paid in full at this time.

PAYMENT POLICY: No student will be allowed to take first semester exams unless his/her tuition is current. Therefore, a minimum of one-half of the family tuition must be paid prior to the first semester exam dates in January. No student will be allowed to take second semester exams unless his/her tuition and any other fees are paid in full. In the event a family finds itself in an extraordinary circumstance, a request for an exception to the first semester payment policy can be made to the Superintendent. The written request is to include an explanation of the extraordinary circumstance accompanied by a payment plan. The Superintendent has the authority to make such an exception if it is deemed appropriate and the payment plan is acceptable. A family’s payment history will be examined in making such a decision. There are no exceptions to this policy at the end of the second semester. Once two weeks of a quarter are completed, the full quarter's tuition is required.


Notice about Environmental Science for 2019-2020 School Year

Course Change for 2019-20

The Environmental Science course will not be offered for the 2019-20 school year. If students chose this class for next year, Guidance will be calling them in within the next week to determine an alternative class. Students who still need a third science will be told the various science options they are qualified to take. Students who have fulfilled their third science can choose another science class, or another course entirely. These students will NOT be charged for this schedule change. Thank you for your understanding.


FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE for 2019-2020 SCHOOL YEAR

Reminder, the deadline to apply for Financial Assistance for the 2019-20 school year is May 1st. If you haven't filled out an application yet, go to our school website and apply online through FACTS, our tuition assistance processor. All information can be found at https://www.marian.com/tuition-and-financial-aid/.

We will send out notification letters in June.

FRESHMEN & SOPHOMORE PARENTS: We Need Your Help With PROM!

Because our Juniors and Seniors aren't TOO KEEN to have their parents attend prom, we rely on our Freshmen and Sophomore parents to volunteer to work the event! It's a wonderful way to get a glimpse of the glamour in your student's future - but most importantly, it makes the evening so special for our students. We have raffle tables, a quieter card-playing area, and a photo booth that we offer our students. It's also wonderful to hang out with all the faculty who dedicate their evening to chaperone the event!


If you are available to help work this event (April 26th) we would love to hear from you!

A NOTE ABOUT PROM PHOTOS!

This year, DeWane Studio will be on hand AT THE PROMENADE from 4:30 pm - 5:35 pm taking formal portraits of our students! In the past, we have enjoyed DeWane photography AT the prom venue, but this year we are changing it up for a very good reason! We are thrilled to share that Mr. Jim DeWane (a proud MC Alum!) will be attending his son's wedding rehearsal and dinner the night of our Prom - so it turns out, he will find himself on the other side of the camera for a change! Marian Central is thrilled to extend our congratulations to Mr. DeWane's family as they celebrate this wonderful occasion!
