Unfortunately, Marist Splash 2020 has been cancelled.

We regret to announce that Marist Splash 2020 has been cancelled, in response to CDC event guidelines and the recent declaration of a State of Emergency in NY due to the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
We thank you sincerely for your support, and are refunding those who prepaid for Marist Splash.

We hope to see you at a future Marist Splash event; our next event is likely to be Micro Splash, in the Fall.

What is Marist Splash?
Splash is a one-day event where high school and middle school students come to Marist's campus to take fun classes. Classes are taught by Marist students, and everyone involved in hosting Marist Splash is a volunteer.

What classes can I take?
Take whatever classes interest you. Classes can be pretty much about anything!

Do you really mean anything?

We encourage parents to explore campus and the beautiful and historic Hudson Valley. Some of the nearby attractions include:
