An independent Preschool through Grade 12 school for gifted students.

Your Gift Matters

Mariann Hoag was a leader, administrator, and visionary at the Roeper School for over 60 years. She served as the Chair of the Financial Aid committee for most of her tenure. She was the perfect mix of mother and taskmaster, knew every student by name, knew when to tell them to pull their socks up, and knew the greatness in every child. If there is a larger purpose in a life than was Mariann’s, it truly escapes us. She changed the course of the lives of generations of Roeper students because of her fierce and purposeful devotion. Established in her name, The Mariann Hoag Financial Aid Grant Award Program reminds us of a life lived to make a difference.

We invite you to invest in the education of compassionate and responsible leaders of tomorrow.
