Our Campus

Campus Master Plan Overview

Marist School’s Campus Master Plan is a key outcome of the school’s long-range strategic plan, Vision 2020. The writing of the strategic plan was a multi-year collaborative effort that included all Marist stakeholdersfaculty, staff, parents, students, alumni, and board of trustees and it addresses every facet of the school.

The Campus Master Plan provides the road map necessary to enact the school's vision of becoming a model for Catholic secondary education. Designed to complete what the Marists began when they moved to the Ashford Dunwoody campus in 1962, the Campus Master Plan will have a lasting impact on the educational experience of every Marist student for generations to come.

Projects outlined in the Campus Master Plan have been divided into phases, which will dramatically enhance the current campus over the next decade. Marist School has completed Phase One of this multi-year effort, which was funded by the $37.2 million capital campaign, The Way. The Hope. The Promise.
