2017-18 Highlights

Purcell Marian High School underwent an incredible transformation in 2017 with the appointment of alumnus Andy Farfsing '95 as principal, and some critical changes in leadership, including administration and board members.  Incredibly, in less than just six months, many noteworthy changes were made, which definitely caught the attention of alumni, parents, faculty and students.  Not only did we demonstrate the power of the Cavalier spirit, but we sparked the reinvestment of some pretty notable Cavaliers along the way!  The gallery below not only captures some of the highlights, but also connects you to access to the full library of our recent history at The Castle.  We hope you're inspired to jump on board and be a part of the positive change.  Enjoy!  

Together.  Onward Cavaliers!


Our senior class is getting ready to move on some some exciting new endeavors, but in true Cavalier style, not without reaching for every opportunity available to them!  Below, meet some of our Senior All-Stars, and help us congratulate them as prepare to move #Onward!
