HEAD OF SCHOOL - Christina Broderick

Since 1938, Marymount School has been welcoming families from all over Santa Barbara and the Central Coast region. Marymount partners with families with a commitment to provide 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. A Marymount education provides an exceptional and balanced approach for the intellectual, social, emotional and ethical growth of each student. Every Marymount classroom is created to be an open, respectful, and supportive environment which gives rise to informed, compassionate, and intellectually curious students who are prepared to face the next phase of their journey with a uniquely diverse and global perspective.

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 students are grounded. 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. 

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 come to the Santa Barbara Riviera and witness for yourself, the amazing educational community that is Marymount. Our bright, confident, and caring faculty, staff, and students can’t wait to welcome you.  Join us in experiencing the magic of Marymount.
