How It Works

Middle School

MU Prep is a private school. We provide licensed teachers and instructional materials. Students and families will be responsible for providing some school supplies, such as printer ink and paper. Because our students take classes online, a computer with an internet connection is required. Loaner computers are available for families based on demonstrated financial need. Our enrollment consultants can help address your technology and computer questions and needs.

Middle school is a time when students become more independent, taking on more responsibility and ownership for their learning. A parent (or other responsible adult) serves as a “Learning Coach” to the child. Parent/Learning Coach involvement is critical for success as middle school students continue building their organization and time-management skills. Teachers set the pace of instruction, but the Learning Coach helps the student stay on track.

Parent/Learning Coach involvement may vary per child and grade level. The initial 4 to 8 weeks can be intensive as families settle into a routine. Students in grades 6–8 build self-advocacy skills and work more directly with teachers, but parent/Learning Coach involvement is essential for approximately 20 hours a week.

In addition to  Class Connects, teachers may offer support or small group sessions to assist students. Middle school teachers work with families to ensure students are progressing academically as expected. Parents/Learning Coaches are encouraged to contact their child’s homeroom teacher any time they have questions or concerns.

Our testing is purposeful and meaningful and drives our instructional practices to best serve your child’s individual needs.

MU Prep students will complete national benchmark assessments through NWEA at the beginning, middle, and end of each school year. MU Prep-Indiana students must also comply with all Indiana-mandated testing requirements.
