MART members are asked to provide fundamental information about Marist and answer questions from prospective students and parents.
Regional Receptions: Regional receptions typically take place in the fall and spring, and are often hosted at hotels or the homes of alumni. These events include a presentation by a member of the admission committee, questions and answers, and time for students to network with alumni.
Accepted Student Letter Writing Campaign: Write one letter and we will distribute it to accepted students from your area and those who are graduating from your high school.
