Marianapolis was established in 1926 under the sponsorship of the Congregation of Marians of the Immaculate Conception. Originally called St. Mary’s College, the school embraced a mission of preparing young men to take leadership roles in society and the Catholic Church.
The school became coeducational in 1974, opening with 108 students, 8 of whom were female. By 1975, female enrollment increased substantially, and women began competing on their own interscholastic athletics teams. The school population has continued to grow and diversify throughout the new millennium; enrollment has remained steadily at about half-male, half-female.
In August of 2001, the Trinity Foundation (a group of parents, alumni, and friends) assumed governance of the school and appointed Marilyn Ebbitt as Headmistress. Significant campus expansion continued, including the acquisition and renovation of dormitories and the development of the theatre, the dance studio, and many school programs. The Trinity Foundation named Joseph Hanrahan Head of School in July of 2011.
The mission of Marianapolis Preparatory School is to educate students in the Catholic tradition of academic excellence, with a commitment to an active faith in God and a dedication to building character with content, compassion, and integrity.
