College & Career Center

Welcome to the College + Career Counseling Center at Purcell Marian

The purpose of the College + Career Counseling program is to facilitate four-year partnerships with each family to ensure that all Purcell Marian students are working toward enrollment in college, employment in a career, or enlistment in the military upon graduation from high school.  We measure our success on our 3E Guarantee, which guarantees all graduating seniors are either Employed, Enlisted, or Enrolled at the time of graduation.

Purcell Marian is an International Baccalaureate-candidate school, anticipating a November 2019 official accreditation. The International Baccalaureate® (IB) offers a continuum of international education with programs that encourage both personal and academic achievement, challenging students to excel in their studies and in their personal development. IB research shows that IB students have an easier time adjusting to university studies and life. IB classes will begin in 2019-20 for juniors and seniors.
