Rooted in the Catholic tradition, Marymount encourages each student to develop and nurture her own spiritual identity while respecting those of others. The religious studies curriculum awakens students to the call for social justice and engages them in dialogue about various religious traditions, scripture, and moral/ethical questions. Students of all ages pause for reflection at weekly chapel services as well as at regular Masses, class retreats, and service programs. The program includes preparation for the sacraments of First Eucharist, Reconciliation, and Confirmation.
Service learning and philanthropy support the School’s mission and the goals of the RSHM network of schools. Service learning is a method of teaching, learning, and reflecting that combines academic work with meaningful service to others. Students give of their time and talent to serve the powerless, the deprived, and the marginalized. These activities support the key principles of Catholic Social Teaching.
