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, our ambitions are not limited to the scholastic alone. It is our mission to educate the "whole boy," providing each of our students with the tools necessary to be successful in and out of the classroom. Additionally, as a boys' school we are able to address clearly and directly the particular characteristics and learning needs that boys exhibit.
We are proud of our outstanding faculty whose dedication to their craft and devotion to students make each day exciting at St. Mark's. Our 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. Our 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 our 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.
The School's major objective is to prepare young men for lives of responsibility and leadership. We value and hold dear the principles of integrity, honor, courage, acceptance of responsibility for one's actions, and service to the broader community. We want our students and graduates to make a difference on the campus and in the world.
Choosing the right school environment in which to work involves a number of decisions. As you work your way through this process, we hope that you will see why we are so enthusiastic about this School and the opportunities it holds for boys and our faculty members.
