In Marathon, we know that education is vital to promoting individual and community development. That is why we ensure that Marathon families have access to quality and community based learning opportunities throughout the lifespan.
A range of educational facilities and learning programs are delivered to people of all ages in Marathon. At the primary level, English Public, English Catholic and French Catholic school systems are offered. At the secondary level, both English Public and French Public schools are available. In Canada, a public education is provided free of charge to children and their families who are residents or citizens of Canada. Further information about local primary and secondary school listings can be found on the Marathon website.
In addition, the variety of postsecondary programming in Marathon is impressive. Confederation College operates a satellite campus in the community which provides a wide range of programs and courses for the specific needs of the local labour market. Other postsecondary institutions can also be accessed in Thunder Bay - within just a few hours drive from Marathon. The Marathon website also provides a complete list of postsecondary education options and relevant contact information.
Most importantly, families who choose to move to Marathon can feel comfortable in the fact that all our schools are safe, secure and offer ideal conditions for learning and personal enrichment. In our community, physical education, music, theatre and sports are considered an essential and daily part of a well-rounded education.
