About Our School
Mission and Vision
At Marian University Preparatory School, we believe all students deserve to master what they love and learn as they live. Every day, we personalize the educational experience for every student and teacher through a flexible, relevant, faith-focused approach. By serving both the needs of the individual and the imperatives of the 21st century, we amplify access and success.
Marian University Preparatory School is a private, faith-focused school that blends living with learning for the 21st century. Our vision is to champion every student to self-actualize their gifts, abilities, and character in today's world and beyond. Our mission is to personalize each student's education in an accessible, faith-focused environment, while transforming the delivery of traditional K–12 education. As a religious school sponsored by the Catholic institution Marian University, we welcome students of all faiths who seek an educational experience framed within the context of our Franciscan values of dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship.
School Opening and Location
The school will open for its inaugural first day of school on August 3, 2022, with grades 6–9* for Indiana residents. Marian University Preparatory School provides an innovative delivery system that allows students to choose between virtual (full-time) or hybrid (part-time virtual/part-time in-person). Given the flexible nature of school, we plan to extend our mission to students across the state and country. With each academic year, Marian University Preparatory School will thoughtfully add up to two grade levels, expand Marian University Preparatory School Plus "Hybrid" to additional cities, and open enrollment to students outside of Indiana.
For its inaugural year, Marian University Preparatory School will be open to Indiana residents. Specifically, Marian University Preparatory School’s virtual learning format is open to students across the state. Marian University Preparatory School Plus "Hybrid", our hybrid model, will pilot in Indianapolis. Marian University is in the heart of Indianapolis, Indiana and is home to the in-person, Marian University Preparatory School Plus "Hybrid" experience in the first year. Although only 10 minutes from downtown Indianapolis, the safe, beautiful campus is also perfect for people who enjoy peace and quiet.
