Welcome to Marian


We are a Catholic college preparatory school located in northern Indiana and within the Diocese of Fort Wayne South Bend. Our Patroness, Our Lady of Lourdes, guides and teaches us as she did for Bernadette in her apparitions that every life holds value and beauty. Our faculty and staff show care for each student while challenging each to reach their greatest potential. We teach our students to care for each other and to show that love through service.

When you enroll at Marian, you become part of a community that helps each other grow academically, athletically, spiritually, and socially. The Catholic education you receive at Marian is both transformational and powerful. Each day you will be challenged to go forth and lead the world to a better place.

We encourage you to talk with members of our community about their experiences, and invite conversations with you about your children.

Warmest Regards,

Mark B. Kirzeder

Principal of Marian High School
