School traditions mark major milestones on the path to manhood, connecting students across grades and generations and keeping them firmly rooted in the history of the School.
Community moments. Traditions such as the Senior Buddy program and the All-School Christmas Party link upperclassmen with the Lower School, helping the older boys embrace their role as mentors. Others, such as Blue Shirt Day for rising seniors, signal new responsibilities and privileges that come with growing up.
Connecting the generations. As a whole, these traditions knit together the past, present and future of St. Mark’s into one seamless brotherhood, joining the oldest alumni and the youngest students together with the shared experience of being a Marksman.
