    New this year, Marist School is adding the Character Skills Snapshot (CSS) as a component to our application. We know your child is much more than grades and test scores and you, as parents, are interested in an education that focuses on instilling character values and encouraging personal growth.  The CSS will provide us richer holistic information about your child and illuminate areas where our community can help them grow, thrive and shine as individuals.  For more information and details about the CSS, please read Because Character Matters.  How to Access the Character Skills Snapshot explains in detail the process for taking and submitting the CSS.
