Curriculum That Sparks the Joy of Learning

At Marian University Preparatory School (MU Prep), we believe all students should wake up excited to learn. We also believe that true learning starts by calling out to the innate curiosity in each child and sparking the excitement of discovery.

The elementary curriculum focuses on developing fundamental skills and teaching the key knowledge building block seach student needs to master the major subject areas, meet state standards, and complete more advanced coursework. Our personalized approach means students can go as fast or slow as they need to.

Lessons come alive with a rich mixture of online and hands-on materials, including interactive animations; printed books with beautiful illustrations and narrative, original music and videos; and materials for hands-on experiments.**

Lessons are followed by formal and informal assessments, so you can be sure your child has mastered a concept before moving on. Built-in planning and progress tools make it easy to stay on track. And with hundreds of lessons per subject, students can dive deeply into areas of interest.

Throughout our K–5 courses, you’ll find repeated themes that build on the earlier grade’s teaching and weave an ever-richer tapestry of overlapping knowledge. That means your child may study literature from the same time period as the art or history lessons covered in our classes. For example, a story about a king who built a monument to honor his late wife dovetails nicely with an examination of the origin, history, and architecture of the Taj Mahal.
