EUGENE — Marist Catholic High School will begin the second semester with more than 515 students, up from 483 at the end of last school year. School leaders point to strong programs, a welcoming community and a focus on helping families in need of tuition assistance as keys to the growth and future expansion.

Marist has 139 current 9th graders, up over 10 percent from recent years’ averages.  

In addition, Marist has welcomed 30 upper classmen transfers from surrounding schools, a number that has been more typically 12-15 students each year.

Stacey Baker, assistant principal in charge of admissions, credits many advanced placement and college credit classes.

“Many of our students are leaving with enough credits to be at or very near sophomore standing at major universities," Baker says. "We give credit to the hard work of students themselves and to the outstanding corps of teachers who have been certified as having advanced levels of education in their subject matters.”  

This year Marist has also filled two classes of a new Robotics program that includes competition with other schools.

Marist has taken steps to put into effect a key piece of the  mission — making the Marist education available to all students who are willing to work hard.  

“We accept students with a broad spectrum of academic abilities and then help them get ready for a college level program,” said Jay Conroy, Marist's principal.

The school provides support programs, including a year-long Academic Strategies class for students who need assistance. The Student Success Plans guide students and teachers in providing the extra support needed for success.

Baker and Conroy point to Marist's new “Vicariate Scholarship” initiative as a source of support for middle and lower income families wanting to send their students. The school has set aside $25,000 for new students in the Eugene-Springfield area who are Catholic. The scholarships provide base awards with the option for more assistance as needed.

“Our school community and governing Board of Directors are especially committed to providing the exceptional experience of Marist to Catholic families," says Conroy.

"We know that the value of a Marist education is something we want for good, hardworking, conscientious students and their families."   

Marist, St. Paul Parish School and Ohara Catholic Elementary School will join together for the area All-Schools Mass, Thursday, Feb. 2 at 9 a.m. to celebrate Catholic Schools Week.
