It is my pleasure to welcome you to Marymount International, Rome’s oldest international school. Founded by the Religious of the Sacred Heart of Mary (RSHM), Marymount is located just a 20 minute drive from the city center. Our beautiful campus is situated on 40 acres of protected parkland - the perfect setting for students to pursue a full range of academic, artistic, musical, sports and extracurricular activities. The learning environment is supported by the latest technology, including Italy’s first Fabrication Laboratory in a private school. This space is designed for our 21st century digital natives and is built on the work of Professor Seymour Papert and his colleagues at MIT. Our program of studies is based on an international and American curriculum, culminating in the International Baccalaureate Diploma, which has been offered by Marymount for over 30 years.

Marymount is a member of the Global Network of RSHM Schools. We collaborate closely with Marymount Schools in Rome, Paris, London and New York through festivals of learning, sports, music, theatre, the arts, and Model United Nations. Furthermore, Marymount’s Global Network of RSHM Schools extends to 14 other schools around the world including Los Angeles, Portugal, Brazil, Mexico and Colombia.

As a Catholic school focused on the full development of the human person, Marymount’s mission is to welcome students of diverse cultural and religious backgrounds, seeking to guide them toward their full potential by striving to prepare them both academically and spiritually to be lifelong learners and tomorrow’s leaders, as well as to respond generously to the needs of our world and promote justice and dignity for all.  

I encourage you to contact and visit us to discover all the many qualities that make Marymount such an outstanding environment for our students, and look forward to welcoming you to our school.
