The Marianapolis education continues on athletic fields, across dance floors, and behind camera lenses. Each student must participate in two seasons of extracurricular activities every year. 

With over 17 varsity options to choose from, the elite, competitive athlete is in good company here. Students can learn a competitive sport for the first time, too, accessing JV and IIIs level options. And for some of our brightest scholars, the Math Team is the ideal venue for competition.

Many students use extracurricular activities to stay healthy - mind and body. Whether they take center stage in a dramatic production, or find spiritual balance through yoga, students grow in countless ways outside the classroom. For a list of non-competitive extracurricular activity options, click here
