Why transfer to Marymount?
Finding the right educational experience isn’t easy — it’s a balance between academics, co-curricular opportunities, and cultural fit. At Marymount High School, we strive to create an environment where students feel welcome as they develop the essential skills and competencies that will lead them to future success.
Each fall, we welcome a group of transfer students into our community. We meet with them the summer prior to enrollment to discuss their academic schedule and make sure they feel welcomed before school starts. These transfer students immediately immerse themselves in our community in meaningful ways and easily find their place here.

Learning at Marymount
Marymount has a plethora of extracurricular activities that allow me to explore various fields of interest, such as performance art through their supportive CAP program, unique sports like rowing, and the SAILL internship program. These experiences have allowed me to meet and bond with classmates who share similar interests, as well as take advantage of the numerous opportunities that Marymount provides!
The variety of courses I'm taking challenge me academically, and inspire me to explore more. I'm also extremely thankful for the amazing teachers who are constantly supporting me both in and out of the classroom. Meeting with my teachers to discuss projects, essays, tests, and more has truly helped me grow as a student.
The Conservatory Arts Program has been one of the best experiences of my life, and I love the supportive and welcoming environment that encourages creativity and risk!
Having the opportunity to be a part of the Marymount community has truly been a gift for me, because I got to meet such strong, kind, determined, and stellar young women — I'm always inspired by my fellow classmates.

We will review each incoming student’s transcript prior to enrollment so that we can discuss the courses for which you will receive credit. We will then discuss what requirements you still need to complete, and by when you should complete it. We will help to create an academic map so that you have a road to success and graduation!
