Please view this documentary film to learn more about our incredible school community.
St. Mark the Evangelist School was founded in 1912 by Saint Katharine Drexel as the first Catholic School in New York City for African-American students. At the time, schools in New York were sharply segregated, and there were very few schools where African-American children could receive a quality education. Now accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools, our school continues to offer an outstanding primary education. The history of the school is long and distinguished because it has never wavered from its original purpose: to provide an opportunity for African-American children to receive an excellent Catholic education. St. Mark's School is more than a notable alternative to the overburdened public school system: it is an enclave of community and triumph. It has remained a remarkably constant and visible presence in Harlem for almost 100 years. This tradition sets St. Mark's School apart. Decades of refining our teaching methods have led to our track record of success. St. Mark's students attend some of the best high schools in the New York City area and are well equipped for future academic and professional success. We encourage you to visit St. Mark's and see firsthand why generations of Harlem families have trusted us with their children's education. High School Placement
