Highland, IN-(ENEWSPF)- In addition to advertising its next open house in “all the usual places,” Marian Catholic has extended its reach into Northwest Indiana.

A friend sent this picture to me this evening. Saw it driving down Route 41 approaching Route 30.

Marian Catholic’s Open House will be on Sunday, October 30, 2016, from 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. The school boasts 97 AP scholars and $19.7 million in college scholarships for the graduating class of 2016 alone.

Founded in 1958, Marian Catholic High School enjoys a rich cultural and geographical diversity drawing outstanding students from 71 different zip codes in Illinois and Northwest Indiana. Twice named a Blue Ribbon School and one of America’s Most Challenging High Schools by The Washington Post, Marian Catholic has a strong reputation for excellence in academics, athletics and fine arts.

We proudly honor our heritage by incorporating the values of Marian Catholic’s founding congregation, the Dominican Sisters of Springfield. The Dominican Pillars of Study, Prayer, Community and Preaching, continue to guide and inspire the entire Marian Catholic community. Selected seniors minister as Dominican Preachers, serving as spiritual leaders for the entire student body.

Ninety-five percent of Marian Catholic students voluntarily participate in service activities from feeding the homeless to assisting with Special Olympic events to rehabbing homes in Appalachia.

Marian Catholic is the only high school in the United States with a four-year Leadership Program in which all students participate. Students have the opportunity to engage in leadership roles throughout the Marian experience including academics, athletics, fine arts, band and student government. Marian Catholic’s one-to-one iPad initiative and new STEM program provide students with the skills and experiences they will need to succeed in the future.

And, as always, Marian Catholic is home to “countless Scholars with a Soul.”

And I couldn’t be happier.

Please share this information about the school’s Open House with your friends.
