Dear Prospective Spartan Parents and Students,
It was an honor to return “home” to join Saint Mark’s High School as the Director of Admissions last fall. In celebrating our 50th Anniversary Year, the 2019-2020 school year was filled with amazing accomplishments, school spirit, events, and a sense of family like never before. Guided by the leadership of our exceptional Principal, Mr. Thomas Fertal, Saint Mark's renewed our Vision; To serve as the premier center for education and ministry within the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington. As such, our leadership team and faculty are fully committed as Stewards of our Mission; To inspire young men and women to create a better world, one more pleasing to God and more helpful to others.
The impact of our renewed vision and exciting initiatives were displayed in our department's statistics! An unprecedented 20 percent increase in total student enrollment over the past year has crowned Saint Mark's the growth leader of all Catholic schools in the state of Delaware. Two hundred students from six states and 52 middle schools have joined our Spartan family. This is a 58% increase in the freshman class alone. Also, it is the first time since 2007 that our incoming freshman class is larger than our graduating class. Additionally, 35 transfer students from 16 schools and 4 states have joined our Spartan family. It is certainly an exciting time here at Saint Mark's!
As we move into the 2020-2021 school year, I welcome our prospective students to the first step in realizing their potential for excellence. From our unmatched reputation for having one of the best campuses in the region to our science labs, beautiful theater, 18 Advanced Placement courses, individualized instruction, and competitive athletics and arts programs, Saint Mark’s offers limitless opportunities for all students.
Grounded in Catholic values and traditions, Saint Mark’s students from all backgrounds build faith-filled lives of leadership and excellence. It is through these foundational teachings that our Spartans - over 17,000+ Alumni - have become well prepared and confident to pursue a lifetime of excellence.
We look forward to effectively communicating the limitless opportunities that Saint Mark's has to offer and showing you why Saint Mark's is truly THE PLACE TO BE!
