Teaching Excellence

St. Mark’s is proud of its outstanding faculty whose dedication to their craft and devotion to students make each day exciting at St. Mark’s.
As a college preparatory institution, St. Mark’s School of Texas prepares boys and young men for each successive step of their academic careers. However, these ambitions are not limited to the scholastic alone. It is the School’s mission to educate the “whole boy,” providing each student with the tools necessary to be successful in and out of the classroom. Additionally, as a boys’ school, St. Mark’s is able to address clearly and directly the particular characteristics and learning needs that boys exhibit.

St. Mark’s teachers view the curriculum as a dynamic entity, something that must be carefully crafted to ensure that traditional strengths endure while new possibilities are captured. Their aim is to help students acquire knowledge and develop fundamental academic processes while sharpening their critical thinking and problem solving skills. Marksmen are taught to read, write, and think analytically across the disciplines and at all grade levels. The latest technologies are integrated into the classroom, allowing boys to be modern and capable learners. To complement the academic experience, St. Mark’s offers boys a variety of opportunities for participation and leadership in the School community. Whether in or out of the classroom, St. Mark’s encourages students to realize their potential, rewarding both striving and achieving.
