Marxe School's 25th Anniversary Celebration
On Marxe 14, 2019, the Marxe School held our 25 th Anniversary Celebration where students, alumni, faculty, and friends of Marxe came together for the event. Here are some memories from the celebration.

The Marxe School is committed to meeting the growing needs of our students, and, studying away has proven to be one of the most effective means for students to develop the necessary skills to succeed in the future.  This video is a small sample of some of the student experiences.
