New Faith-Based Private School Offers Personalized Learning Options to Grades 6-9
When students were forced to learn from home in 2020, schools saw mixed results. While others preferred a more traditional school experience, some students excelled in a virtual learning environment. In a post-pandemic world, families are embracing their new-found flexibility to continue working from home, relocate to a new city or state, or pursue passions outside of work. Education should be no different.
Launched in March 2022, Marian University Preparatory School (MU Prep) aims to transform the delivery of traditional education through a personalized, faith-focused learning environment.
In the modern world, a one-size-fits-all approach to education cannot meet the needs of every student. MU Prep believes students should be able to master what they love and learn as they live, meaning education should fit into a student’s life, not the other way around.
Learning should not be confined to a classroom from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Whether you’re a student athlete with a busy schedule, a student who learns better virtually, or a family on the move, MU Prep provides a high-quality personalized educational experience to every student.
To meet the needs of students, families can choose to enroll their child in a fully virtual program, learning from home or on the go. Prep Plus, our hybrid program, offers a more hands-on experience with in-person and virtual classes throughout the week in Indianapolis. Families looking to provide their student with part-time learning options can enroll in up to three courses.
Each option connects students to a vibrant faith-based community.
Our faith is integrated in everything we do. 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: dignity of the individual, peace and justice, reconciliation, and responsible stewardship. Each day, we incorporate our faith in our classes and activities, following the Archdiocese of Indianapolis Catholic curriculum guidelines for teaching religion.
Providing a high-quality education that meets the imperatives of the 21st century through a flexible learning environment is a heavy lift, which is why we’ve partnered with several organizations. In addition to being sponsored by Marian University, we’re using the comprehensive learning platform from Stride, Inc. to provide a world-class, personalized education experience through an adaptable curriculum offering core subjects, religion, electives, and career and college readiness coursework and opportunities.
Through partnerships with Ascend Indiana and EmployIndy, students will participate in relevant work- and project-based learning opportunities, so they are prepared to enter college or begin their career upon graduation. Our state-certified teachers will provide mentorship to Marian University Fred. S. Klipsch Educators College students, giving aspiring educators unique practicum experience in virtual and hybrid school environments. MU Prep students will have access to comprehensive support through City Connects.
Marian University Preparatory School is accredited through the Indiana State Board of Education and accepts Indiana Choice Scholarships. Income-eligible families can receive a choice scholarship – or voucher – to offset tuition costs.
We are currently enrolling grades 6-9 for our virtual and hybrid programs, with in-person classes taking place in Indianapolis. With each academic year, we will thoughtfully add additional grade levels, expand Prep Plus to additional cities, and open enrollment to students outside of Indiana.
Learning should not hinder a student’s life outside of school. Marian University Preparatory School empowers students to master what they love and learn as they live – without missing out on a high-quality education or sacrificing their dreams.
