Supports STEM Learning

Berges Family Innovation Center
Marian Middle School is excited to announce a challenge grant from the Brown Sisters Foundation, which will enable us to finish the innovation center. The Brown Sisters Foundation's $50,000 grant “challenges” us to raise the remaining funds ($245,000) with the support of new, lapsed, and upgraded donors by June 30, 2017.

We broke ground on the Berges Family Innovation Center on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. Each of our students and several of our foundresses had the opportunity to make their personal contribution toward the demolition process by swinging a hammer into the wall!

The Berges Family Innovation Center will be a place for our students to discover, develop, design, and deliver. 

We hope you will invest in this endeavor. It will enable our students to become workforce ready critical thinkers and creative problem solvers with the skills to be highly employable in STEM-related careers.
