* Please take the time to read the information below on Marshall's need-based financial aid program. We know for many families the numbers above can land somewhere between intimidating to impossible. But for more than 40% of our community, there is an affordable tuition determined after our need-based financial aid program. This program truly works, otherwise hundreds of our students would not otherwise be able to attend our wonderful school.

Financial Aid

We understand that without our financial aid program, Marshall would not be a possibility for all families. For this reason, we have designed a robust and comprehensive program, which has been successful in helping hundreds of families access an outstanding independent school education.

During the 2016-17 academic year, more than 45% of Marshall students received need-based financial aid. Many different families qualify for financial aid for many different reasons. Families with higher incomes may still qualify for financial aid at Marshall, depending on family circumstances. For best consideration, it is important for families to connect with the admissions office as soon as possible in the annual admissions cycle. There is no such thing as reaching out "too early" in this process.

Here is an even better statistic to keep in mind as you consider exploring our school. Out of the families who have taken the time to work through the need-based financial aid process with our admissions office, three out of four of them end up attending Marshall School. This means a 75% chance that Marshall's need-based financial aid program will work its way to a tuition that you can afford. We work with too many people who wish they would have explored us sooner, or even more sadly, never contacted our office, because they "knew they weren't eligible for need-based financial aid" when they actually were.

The entire financial aid process is both dignified and private because that is very important us.

Topper Tunnels

One of our traditions is to send state bound students off to their competition with a "topper tunnel." where all students line the front hallway and cheer for their classmates. Some of the teams and activities honored recently include:

  • Math League
  • Dance
  • Robotics
  • All State Music
  • Tennis
  • CyberPatriots



Monday, March 13, our community unites to demonstrate this excellence via the Marshall Fine Arts Showcase. This annual show has been a tradition for many years, and students beautifully reveal the heart of Marshall through their pieces. Done in partnership with Zeitgeist Arts, the event is a celebration of Youth Art Month. "We try to pick work that really showcases what we've been learning," Burns said, "or maybe a student really pushed their own boundaries and we're really proud of them."

Imagine how muddled you would feel if you stumbled onto a stage, were mistaken as an understudy, and forced to perform a play in which you knew none of the lines. This 'play-ception ' is the premise of Marshall's One Act play of 2017—The Actor's Nightmare. Written by Christopher Durang, this fun, entertaining comedy will keep you interested as you witness the struggles of the main character, George, as he is thrust into several plays he knows nothing about and begins to even doubt his own identity as he confuses all the actors around him who don't understand why he doesn't know any of his lines.
