The Explore Program is on hold during the 2021 fall semester. If you are an alum or parent who would like to be a part of opportunities for students within the program such as mentoring or internships, contact Marist President Larry Tucker ’79.
Marist High School’s Explore Program was established to provide unique opportunities for students to consider careers through mentorship, special events, and professional resources. It allows students unsure of a future career the chance to learn from seasoned professionals about a variety of industries, while affording students who have a career goal in mind the opportunity to delve deeper into the industry, attain insider knowledge and gain invaluable professional experience while in high school.
Students in the program have access to industry leaders from a variety of professions, the opportunity to attend cultural and political events, access to internship and research opportunities.
This program helps set Marist students apart from peers, as it differentiates them from the typical college applicant. Explore Program graduates are uniquely prepared for college and eventually, professional life.
