Andrean High School is a coeducational Catholic college preparatory school located in Merrillville, Indiana. The school was founded in 1959, and named after the first bishop of the diocese of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Gary, Andrew Grutka. Since its founding, Andrean has been staffed in part by members of the Basilian Fathers and the Sisters of Saints Cyril and Methodius.

Its current principal is the Rev. Paul E. Quanz, CSB.

The school's teams are the Fighting '59ers. This name comes from the address of the school, 5959 Broadway, and the year of its founding. The 2004 '59ers football team won the Indiana high school class 3A football championship defeating Heritage Hills 21–14 in Indianapolis to cap off a 13–2 season. It was the school's first football title after appearing in the title game three other times in '97, '01, and '02.

The school colors are red and gold in honor of the martyrdom and subsequent glory of St. Andrew. The school motto is "Magister Meus Christus," or "Christ is my teacher."

From 1980–2008 the men's baseball team has had 19 sectional championships, 8 regional championships, 1 semi state championship, and 2 state titles in 2005 and 2009. Dave Pishkur has been the coach through all of these winning seasons.

The Andrean softball team has become the 2009 regional champions. They have also won two state titles in 1998 and 2007. This season, they have hired on Henry Ryan as the new head coach.
