Scecina: tradition, opportunities, faith

Why is Scecina an excellent high school for your child? You should expect a high school that offers high-level academics, a full array of athletics and clubs, and opportunities for a fulfilling all-around experience and four years of cherished memories. 

We have a small-school environment where every child can discover his or her unique gifts, talents, and interests. Our college and life preparatory opportunities help young people reach their dreams. 

Did you know that Scecina’s rich academic tradition dates back more than 60 years? And we’ve kept up with 21st-century academic trends. Recent additions to our curriculum include a four-year Biomedical Science program, a Health Occupations course that takes place at Community Hospital East, and new computer science and technology offerings. 

Our top faculty and our smaller classes, paired with challenging academic offerings, such as Advanced Placement (AP) courses, will prepare young people for meaningful careers. Our College and Career counseling office is committed to students staying on course throughout high school for their next phase in life. 

It’s no surprise that Scecina is rated “A” by the Indiana Department of Education (IDOE). The IDOE noted Scecina students’ growth in test score achievement from middle school to high school. 

The IDOE also recognized Scecina as one of just 73 Indiana high schools to have 25 percent or more of its students succeed on AP exams by earning passing marks and qualifying for college credit while in high school. 

Have you heard of the Indianapolis Urban League (IUL)? The IUL is a community organization devoted to helping minorities and the disadvantaged, with a focus on education. The IUL recently awarded Scecina with its School Excellence Award. The IUL cited several reasons for Scecina’s honor: our diverse student population; our “A” rating from the IDOE; and our Health Occupations class in partnership with Community Hospital East, which combines classroom instruction and real-life experience. 

At Scecina we take spiritual growth seriously, too. Every student takes four years of Catholic theology with curriculum centered around the life of Christ. We are committed to Christian service activities that benefit our community. 

Most of our students also play sports, which teach transformational life lessons. Scecina offers all of the Indiana High School Athletic Association sports, including swimming and gymnastics. 

Choosing a high school these days isn’t easy. At Scecina, we have so much to offer. We have tradition in academics and athletics. We have opportunities for every child to grow. We have a faith-based community that will pray with you and for you along the way. 

I hope you see why Scecina is a great choice. We look forward to serving you next year. If you have any questions about Scecina, please contact me at (317) 352-3280. If you would like more information about becoming a Scecina Crusader, please click here.
