St. Mary's Marian Division began educating seventh and eighth graders since 1990 when it first opened its doors as a middle school. In 2011, St. Mary's expanded the Marian Division to include sixth grade.
The Marian Division allows students the opportunity to study across a seven-year integrated curriculum, with several course options to enhance learning.
Marian Division students benefit by having the opportunity to participate in sports, drama and clubs while studying in an environment that is driven by a college preparatory mindset.
Eighth grade holds the importance as the launching platform for the high school years and maintains the same academic rigor. Language Arts, Mandarin and Spanish are three language courses, Algebra Math, Physical Science, Modern World Civilization, Physical Education, Theology and Yearbook and Journalism. STEM Automation and Robotics is added into the academic schedule.
