Supporting Marburn Academy
Marburn Academy, like most not-for-profit independent schools, depends on both tuition and charitable gifts to support ongoing operations and programs. The generosity of the Columbus community enables Marburn to provide the finest research-based, college preparatory education to bright children with dyslexia and ADHD. We are profoundly grateful for the time, talent, and resources given by so many in our internal and extended family on behalf of the students and educators at Marburn Academy.
