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.

    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.

    Marist College is currently committed to campus-wide expansion projects and creating an environment that is more culturally diverse. Marist has branched out from its Catholic affiliation and reputation as a small party school, to become a respected institution. Students enjoy small class sizes and state of the art facilities, as well as a variety of extracurricular activities and opportunities.
