Marian Scholar Club

It is our tradition at Marian, that on the feast of the Immaculate Conception we recognize our Marian Scholars; those students who scored 600 or higher in either or both parts of the SAT and also anyone who has a comparable ACT score. It was the Administration’s privilege today to recognize and congratulate those students, and those that were already a part of this distinguished group.

Food Drive



Thank you to all those who donated items to the National Honor Society’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.  Over 250 pounds of food were collected and will be distributed to food pantries in Coaldale, Frackville, McAdoo and Shenandoah.  The Sophomore Class brought in the most items and will be awarded a dress day down. Thanks again for your generosity in making the holidays a little brighter for our neighbors!


Coach Dakosty Returns

Marian Catholic High School Principal Jean Susko proudly announces the Marian Catholic High School’s 2020 Football Season Head Coach as Stan Dakosty. We are looking forward to rebuilding the Marian football program and Stan is the right choice to do so. With 43 years of football coaching experience and 40 of the years as Marian Catholic High School’s head football coach, he is well known as the winningest football coach in District 11 history, posting a career record of 309-148-3. Stan’s teams have won eight District 11 titles, six conference championships and the 1990 PIAA state crown. He has sent over 270 players onto play college football and many have gone into coaching football. Stan plans to not only strengthen our Marian program but also work on rebuilding a little Colts program.

According to Stan Dakosty, “After thoughtful consideration and the support of my family, I am proud and excited to return as the head football coach of Marian Catholic High School. As the head coach, my intent will be to run a first class program that will bring out the best of the Marian student athletes on and off the field. I will be reaching out to the Marian Family, who have been so supportive to our program in the past, asking them to continue the support and to build upon it. “

Marian Football Season

A tough emotional decision has been made by Marian Catholic High School to forfeit the remaining football games of this season involving Mahanoy Area on October 18th and Tamaqua Area on October 25th.  This difficult decision was based solely on the safety of the team’s remaining fourteen healthy football players.   Marian Catholic appreciates the hard work and dedication of our student athletes and their coaches throughout this season and we look to move forward and plan for the 2020 season.
