Marian’s Band and Chorus will provide an evening of Music and Christmas Story insight to help you finish celebrating your Christmas Season.
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.
On Monday, November 25th, NHS will sponsor a Mini-THON kick-off event. Students are encouraged to wear gold shirts with uniform bottoms to show their support of ending pediatric cancer. School will run on a PM Activity schedule.

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. “
