Tuition Assistance & Scholarships

Marian High School desires for every student to have the opportunity to receive a well-rounded Catholic education. We are committed to assisting families to provide a Marian education for their student(s). Marian offers awards in the form of tuition assistance and scholarships thanks to the generosity of our donors.
MARIAN TUITION ASSISTANCE

Tuition assistance awards, including Indiana School Choice Scholarships (i.e., the voucher program), are based on financial need. Families must complete the FACTS Grant and Aid Application, the program utilized by Marian High School to determine eligibility for all types of assistance. For all Tuition Assistance Program questions, contact the Marian Business Office at 574.255.2020.

INDIANA SCHOOL CHOICE SCHOLARSHIP INFORMATION (VOUCHER PROGRAM)

The Indiana School Choice Scholarship Program, also known as the voucher program, allows eligible families to use a portion of state funds that would have been spent on their children in their assigned public school district to attend a private school that has opted to participate in the School Choice Scholarship Program. Again, families must complete the FACTS Grant and Aid Application so the Marian Business Office can complete School Choice applications on behalf of qualifying families.

You can afford a Marian education!
