St. Mark’s Mission is to value the individual who comes to us, help that student to realize his or her potential, and to foster a culture that reflects Christian values, intellectual curiosity, and a strong work ethic. Our goal is to develop a student who feels self-confident educationally, socially, and spiritually, and who can reach out to help others in our community.
"I loved my time at St. Mark's. St. Mark's not only prepared me extremely well for my first years in high school on an academic level, but it also helped me develop life-long friends, values, and goals that have shaped my life."
Jake Noble, Class of 2006, Mechanical Engineering Student at Vanderbilt University
"St. Mark’s provided the academic foundation that allowed me to succeed in high school, college, graduate school, and, ultimately, as a college professor. The work I do – conducting research, publishing, teaching classes – is the culmination of a process that started at St. Mark’s. St Mark’s put me on a path to a lifetime of learning."
Scott Phillips, PhD, Chair, Department of Sociology and Criminology, Director, Socio-Legal Studies
"For me, St. Mark's was a wide, bright path leading to my future successes. It was there I learned how to uphold the standards of academic excellence and how to aspire to being the best possible part of myself. My academic path has been one of hard work and dedication, leading to great rewards and opportunities, and St. Mark's was the stepping stone I took to get there."
Lauralee Robertson, Class of 2000 Industrial/Organizational Psychology Student at Middle Tennessee State University
"The St. Mark’s experience, from K3 to 8th grade, is something that will stick with me forever because it was not only the heart of my childhood, but it is what made me who I am today. It’s not just a school, it’s a family, and this family has guided me through my entire life, driving me to reach my goals, to strive for more, and to achieve what I once thought was impossible."
Bailey Monsour, Class of 2009, Tulane University
"St. Mark’s was and is a significant part of my life. From my first teacher there in third grade, Mrs. Holman, to Math with Ms. Ellington, to Science with Mrs. Triplett, or Computers with Mrs. Vines, each teacher added something that made learning special. At St. Mark’s, the teachers encouraged my love of discovery and also taught me to enjoy school. Throughout high school, my fellow St. Mark’s alums and I have been more than equipped for each new task, even from our first day. St. Mark’s has left me prepared.."
