Why Catholic Education?

As parents we want the best for our children. It is because of this wish that Catholic Schools are the right choice. Catholic schools provide an education program based on Christian beliefs and values, enabling your children to grow in their understanding of themselves, their relationship with God and their relationship with others. A rigorous curriculum taught by committed faculty in a faith-based and nurturing environment. An effective Catholic school reinforces what is taught at home including virtues of discipline, respect, integrity and responsibility. Parents choose Catholic schools because of faith formation, high academic standards, values based education and a safe school environment.

 Why St. Mark’s School?

For nearly 50 years St. Mark’s School has been providing Catholic education to the Boise community. Our mission statement explains it best:

St. Mark’s School is a ministry of St. Mark’s Catholic Community that exists to provide excellent education rooted in the Catholic faith and Christian values. It assists the family in the intellectual, spiritual and physical development of the child.

How does St. Mark’s accomplish this mission? Dedicated faculty and administration. Yearly updates to technology and curriculum. Small class size. New science programs. Security upgrades including video surveillance and remote entries. New roof and other building improvements. All of these factors make St. Mark’s the great school that it has been and will continue to be. But, that sense of belonging, of being a member of the St. Mark’s family, the support, the encouragement, the shared beliefs and values. Most importantly, our commitment to Jesus Christ is what makes us who we are. Won’t you join our family?
