Testimonials

“Absolutely the best decision my husband and I made was to send our two sons, Nolan and Connor, to Marian Central.  The foundation they received at this fine school helped us make them the wonderful young men they are today?”  “GO CANES!”

“Thank you for helping develop and shape our children.  You each had a hand in who they are today.  They are wonderful individuals and as their parents we couldn’t be prouder.”

“My Marian education is a precious gift I received from my parents.  It really shaped who I am today.  Without a doubt, I want to give the same gift to my daughters.  I know that the positive impact Marian has on them won’t end at graduation, it is something they will carry with them the rest of their lives.

Joe Doherty ’80, President of the Marian Central Alumni Association

“At Marian Central you care about each other and your communities as you learn about volunteerism and giving back.  A quest for learning and developing strong values and ethics gives you a faith in God and a belief that you can make a difference.”

“My career as a professional U.S. Air Force Officer and Aviator is rooted deeply in the excellent education and instruction I received in my four years at Marian.  I felt important not because I could run a football but because the teachers, coaches and counselors cared about my future.  Marian taught me about succeeding in life and not just passing the next test.  I would send all of my children to Marian if given the chance!”
