About Marist

School History

With more than 18,000 current alumni, Marist High School opened its doors on September 9, 1963, under the continuing leadership and direction of the Marist Brothers. The school has thrived over the last five decades, developing an innovative and demanding college preparatory curriculum that serves Chicago area and suburban students at all academic levels and promotes a legacy of faith, family and service.

As it has continued to grow in recent years, Marist has made significant capital improvements and additions that have provided more classrooms, a theatre, computer labs, new and improved athletic facilities and more. Academically, Marist graduates have gone on to top universities and achieved success in a variety of industries across the nation.

One of the most significant changes for the school was its transition to a co-ed enrollment during the 2002-2003 school year with the first co-ed class graduating in 2006. The 50th anniversary has also provided a springboard for the school to implement cutting edge technology that focuses on collaborative learning and supports the dedicated teachers who staff three different college-prep programs.

Above all, the past 50 years have been a journey in faith for the school family. The opportunity for young men and women to grow spiritually and live out the mission of the school by serving others has always been at the forefront of life at Marist, from a long-standing senior service outreach program today serving 18 local organizations to service projects in the community to U.S. and international mission trips.
