Meet Keith Marsh
Executive Director & Chief Academic Officer

Keith Marsh is excited to lead the charge at Indiana Agriculture & Technology School. A love of learning and teaching has provided him with a plethora of opportunities in the public, private, and charter sectors. His lauded career includes stints as a coach and principal, an authorizer of charter schools, and the founding principal of a private school, all skills he will put to use in opening Indiana Agriculture and Technology School in July.

“The magnitude of starting a school from the ground up is a great challenge,” Marsh admits. “From building the curriculum, hiring staff, enrolling families, and raising money, it can be overwhelming. But I believe in what this school stands for. It’s unique, first-of-its-kind concept is innovative. We’re going to do great things.”

Born in Lebanon, Indiana and raised in Kokomo, Marsh helped his uncles work their farm during the summer months. “I learned a lot in that summer heat,” Marsh says. “Although I didn’t ultimately pursue a career in agriculture, I’ve always had a special place in my heart for the steadfastness of the farmer. I witnessed it first-hand.”

A graduate of Purdue University, Marsh completed his Masters of Science at Butler University. He has worked as an administrator for MSD Lawrence Township Schools, Tri-Central Schools, the Indiana Life Sciences Academy, and Saint Theodore Guerin High School.

“I wasn’t looking for a new challenge, but when this opportunity presented itself I couldn’t pass it up,” Marsh admits. “This school allows me to marry the best of brick-and-mortar schools with the best of online education. The biggest difference between a traditional public school and a public online school is in the delivery of instruction. This school allows students to be independent learners, to control and be accountable for their own learning. Couple that with real-world career training and job opportunities and it doesn’t get much better.”

When Marsh isn’t working, he enjoys playing golf and spending time with his four children. His oldest son attends Miami of Ohio on a full-ride football scholarship. Marsh has also volunteered his time community groups like the Indiana Special Olympics and the Skiles Test Baseball League.
