When it comes to developing leaders, we’re leading the way. 

While Marion Military Institute is one of the few 2-year, military colleges in the country, it is often misunderstood. Not every Marion cadet pursues a military track. In fact, a large number of our students go on to lead extraordinary lives in the civilian world. You see, our focus is not just military. Our focus is on creating leaders. And, in that light, we are like no other college experience.

At Marion, we combine the use of tried-and-true military programs with leading-edge leadership philosophies to create programs that inspire, engage, and impassion our students. We’ve been perfecting that educational foundation for more than 175 years. Generations of successful alumni consider themselves MARION MADE, and we invite you to hear their stories:
