Mustang PRIDE!


Mariana Academy takes PRIDE in Providing Learning Experiences and Opportunities for Growth, in a Safe and Caring Environment where All Students are Prepared for the Future


Mariana Academy strives to instill a love of learning by creating an engaging environment and planning rigorous lessons designed to challenge students at their individual academic levels and learning styles, thereby raising achievement in Language Arts, Math and Science. Character Education is delivered daily to ensure that our students are kind to others, and themselves. AVID strategies are implemented to provide students with the skills necessary for a successful future; the ability to organize thoughts and materials, in addition to having a growth mindset when faced with a new challenge. Students, Staff, and Parents collaborate to show their Mustang PRIDE while preparing our students for college and career.
