The history of Saint Mark's High School begins in 1966 with the announcement by His Excellency Michael Hyle, 威尔明顿的主教, of the construction of a new Diocesan high school in the Pike Creek valley. The School was given the name of Saint Mark by Bishop Hyle's successor, 尊敬的托马斯·马尔达加阁下. Bishop Mardaga's selection of the name is attributed to Saint Mark's traditional depiction as a young man and an evangelist who was inspired to spread the word of God. 

学校的建设始于1967年, and the first students began attending classes in the September 1969 under the leadership of Father Jim Delaney, 学校的第一任校长.  Construction on the complex was completed in 1970, and the School was dedicated on 24 May 1970.

The School's campus and facilities remained largely unchanged until 1995, when a formerly covered portico area was converted into office and lobby facilities as a part of the School's Silver Anniversary Campaign. In 2008, the School completed two additional athletic fields on lands that were gifted by the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington.

Our school seal is comprised of symbols that uniquely and proudly
identify key elements of our history and tradition.

  • 这颗恒星 -代表圣母, 海之星, which comes from Bishop Hyle’s coat of arms as a reminder of the man who made our school’s existence possible.

  • Chi Rho -基督的象征,beat365正版唯一的根基在祂里面.

  • 打开的书和十字架 -象征基督教教育.

  • 狮子 -圣马可的象征,与学校同名.
  • 十字架 - The cross at the top of our seal is linked to the coat of arms for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, 威尔明顿教区是其中的一部分. The cross is from the coat of arms of the Calvert family who first colonized Maryland in 1634. The Calvert family wanted to create a society of religious toleration, 在新大陆的第一个, which guaranteed people the right to worship freely, laying the foundation of the Catholic Church in our country. Because of these contributions to the Catholic faith, Baltimore was designated the seat of the nation’s first Diocese.

  • 三个“圆形”三角形 - The three 'rounded' triangles in the top of the circle, represent the fact that the Diocese of Wilmington was originally composed of parts of three states: Delaware, 马里兰州的“东海岸”地区, 和维吉尼亚州. These areas constitute the geographic area known as the Delmarva Peninsula. In 1974, Pope Paul VI transferred the Virginia territory of the Diocese of Wilmington to the Diocese of Richmond after the construction of the Chesapeake Bridge-Tunnel improved convenient travel between the Easter Shore Counties of Virginia and the mainland.
