Welcome from Head of School

Since 1938, Marymount has been welcoming families from all over Santa Barbara and central coast region. At Marymount we focus on the different ways children learn; on what knowledge, skills, and experiences they gain; on how they feel about themselves and others; and on how to act as responsible young people concerned not just about their own growth, but about the well-being of others. Marymount partners with families with a commitment to providing an education that nurtures every student’s academic, moral, physical and creative potential. 
Today, over 80 years since our founding, the faculty, staff and families of Marymount stay vitally committed to these important values. Marymount educators are highly skilled and model ethical behavior, stay alert to teachable moments, and encourage children to show kindness and empathy in their interactions with others. Marymount students are confident and caring learners and leaders. 
Marymount provides an exceptional, balanced education; academic, social, emotional and ethical – for the whole child, in an open, respectful and supportive environment which gives rise to informed, compassionate and intellectually curious students prepared to face the next phase of their journey with a uniquely diverse and global perspective. Every moment of every day, magical moments of learning, growing, and thriving are seen in every Marymount classroom from Junior-Kindergarten to 8th grade. Marymount is a place where every student is known, every opportunity is realized and every dream has potential.

I invite you to journey up to the Riviera and witness for yourself, the amazing experience that is Marymount. Our Bright, Confident, and Caring faculty, staff and students can’t wait to welcome you to join us as you experience the magic of Marymount.
