About Centro Hispano Marista

Location:

Mission Statement

Centro Hispano Marista offers GED preparation to all adults willing to complete their high school education so they can pursue the dream to continue with their studies, aspire to better jobs and secure a promising future for themselves and their families. Everyone is welcome at Centro, regardless of their nationality, faith or immigration status.

Description

Centro Hispano Marista is a GED preparation program hosted at Marist School and made possible by the sponsorship of the Society of Mary. An important aspect of Centro Hispano Marista's mission is to reach out, in the name of Jesus and in the spirit of Mary, His Mother, to those who are forgotten or neglected by society.

Aware of the critical need for education and faith formation among the growing population of Hispanic young adults in the Atlanta area, the Marists identified the needs of this group as clearly meeting the criteria of its mission.

Fr. John Harhager, SM, president of Marist School at the time, together with Marist parents of alumni, Sal and Mary Ann Arias, and Carlos Vizcaino, who directed the outreach to the Hispanic community at Our Lady of the Assumption, worked together to determine how best to utilize the resources available at Marist School. The Centro Hispano Marista, sponsored by the Society of Mary and hosted at Marist School opened its doors in the fall of 2012.

In May 2015, Mr. Vizcaino and Mrs. and Mr. Arias retired. Dr. Leticia Valencia took the position of Program Director and together with Mrs. Cecilia gave new structure to the program. Mrs. Marisol Zacarias joined the team in 2021.
