If you're looking for a small private school, Marist College is the one. There are around 5,000 students enrolled, which creates a great atmosphere in the classroom. The maximum amount of students in a class is around 50, while most classes contain 20 students. Marist College is located in Poughkeepsie, New York, which is a small city setting. Because of this, anything you'll ever need is typically located within a short driving distance of the school. There is a 37% acceptance rate, so it is imperative to have impressive grades in high school and for the SAT's.

    Truly a great experience so far. I have no regrets in deciding to come to a small school rather than go to a large university.

    Marist is a place where opportunities are truly limitless. The faculty, staff, and resident directors/assistants are all there to help you achieve your goals and give you the extra push you need. The Red Foxes have made a name for themselves with good reason.

    My parents have told me that I am a leader and as result of their guidance, I have come to not only believe that this is true, but also to live my life proving the truth of their words. Given this fact, I looked for a school that would allow leadership opportunities, deep and meaningful friendships, integrity, hard work, fun and security. Marist is that place that I can now call Â?home.

    Marist is a place where you can either stand out or blend in. It is beautiful in the summer but freezing in the winter and windy all year round. Nothing in high school can prepare you for this, and it might just be the best time of your life.
