The mission of St. Mark’s Cathedral School is to value the individual who comes to us, to help that student 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 first feels self-confident educationally, socially, and spiritually, and who then can reach out to help others in our community.

The development of an effective educational program within a Christian context requires a recognition that each student is a child of God and, as such, has his or her own strengths, aptitudes, abilities, interests and aims which, together, form the unique personality that is his/her own.
