Project Build Application

In order to help the city and state meet goals to build a highly skilled Indiana workforce, Marian University has established Project Build, an adult education outreach program.

  • Project Build provides diverse groups of adults with the educational and career training opportunities they need to (1) improve literacy and numeracy skills and (2) advance their careers.
  • The Klipsch Educators College at Marian is committed to embedding Project Build programs within some of the city's most at risk neighborhoods.

The Project Build Adult Education program offers FREE instruction to adults needing to improve their college and career readiness skills.

We Can Help You

  • Prepare for college coursework
  • Prepare for the high school equivalency diploma test
  • Earn an industry recognized certification
  • Improve skills for a better job

As a Project Build Adult Education student, you set your own goals, work at your own pace, have access to university professors, and, best of all, instruction is free.

Adult Learners can prepare for their high school equivalency examination (HiSET).

Classes We are Offering

In the News 

The Southside Times ran a very nice article about the new Adult Education site at Hope Center Indy. Marian University collaborates with Hope Center Indy through Project Build.

Project Build will be providing HSE and certification classes for the southside community using our DWD and CARES Act grants.

Student of the Month

Meet Angela Gilder, Project Build's Student of the Month. We are so proud of Angela and her accomplishments! We asked her a few questions and here is how she responded. 

Angela Gilder

What made you decide to join Marian's ABE program?

"I realized I need to further my education. I wanted to take another trade. I have been a certified nurse's aide for seven years, but it's not the field for me. So, joining Marian's ABE program refreshed the education I needed to complete the BICSI (cable technology installation) program."
