An Open Letter to Parents of Current 8th Graders

The UBMS program at Marian University is designed to serve 60 students from Fond du Lac High School and Horace Mann High School of North Fond du Lac.  

Any 8th grader has the opportunity to join to program during the summer after their 8th grade year provided they will be attending either Fond du Lac or Horace Mann High school the following year. This program is designed to see students through high school graduation, which means if you join our program after 8th grade, you are part of our program until you go to college.
