In 1955, when the Servants of Mary opened Marian High School, they made the promise that no girl would be turned away for financial reasons. Today, Marian works with each family to review all demonstrated need to ensure that financial hardship does not prevent a girl from attending Marian.

That is why we treat each application with the utmost respect, dignity and confidentiality. We hope to alleviate any anxiety you might have about the cost of attending Marian by providing a preview as to the assistance you may be eligible to receive.

Work Study Program
Marian’s work study program is available to students who qualify for tuition assistance with preference given to freshmen and sophomores. The tuition assistance application must be filled out and approved before a student is accepted into the work study program. Both forms can be filled out and sent in at the same time.
Student assignments before and after school, consist of general cleaning and vacuuming. In-school assignments are performed during study hall blocks. These jobs consist of secretarial work and some light cleaning. The in-school assignments are very limited and will be assigned on a first-come first-served basis. If the in-school assignments are filled, you will be assigned a 30-minute before or after school position. Freshmen are not eligible to participate in the in-school work study program during study hall the first semester. They may apply for the in-school position during study hall second semester.
