Marist School’s varsity football team has the unique and unprecedented opportunity to travel to Dublin, Ireland where they will take on Miami’s Belen Jesuit on Friday, September 2 at Donnybrook Stadium. Marist and Belen Jesuit, an all-boys Jesuit college preparatory school located in Miami, Florida, are playing in the Aer Lingus College Football Classic which precedes the September 3 Boston College vs. Georgia Tech game taking place at Aviva Stadium. Marist’s cheerleading squad will also travel to Ireland.
Most of us are familiar with what took place in Louisiana recently—epic flooding in south central Louisiana, including a good portion of the city of Baton Rouge and some of the areas where the Marists first arrived and served when they came to the United States from France. The result is that many people are homeless and have lost all of their belongings. These were areas that had not flooded before, so many did not have insurance. There is great need.
On Friday, August 12, Marist School welcomed Sr. Georgeanne Donovan S.M.S.M. to campus for the annual faculty and staff retreat. To share in the experience, Marist School invited the faculty and staff of the two other Marist-sponsored schools in Atlanta, Notre Dame Academy and Sophia Academy.
Marist School has announced the successful conclusion of The Way. The Hope. The Promise. The Campaign for Marist School., a $35 million capital campaign which has transformed Marist’s campus, touching every facet of the school and dramatically enhancing the educational experience of current and future Marist students. The campaign, which exceeded its goal by raising $37.2 million, has funded all of the projects of the first phase of the school’s Campus Master Plan.
This summer, four Reach for Excellence graduates returned to Marist School as Reach college interns to assist with the tuition-free academic enrichment program that just celebrated its 15th year serving metro-Atlanta middle school students.
While students enjoyed summer break, Marist School took advantage of a relatively less-busy campus to renovate several spaces on campus, all that will benefit students and enhance the Marist educational experience.
