Marquette University High School is rich in history and tradition. Founded as an academy for young men in 1857 the school was originally established to educate Catholic immigrants in their faith, to aid their families and the community by encouraging productive employment and civic involvement.
MUHS has evolved with each passing decade to meet the changing needs of the young men in our community and like our 17th Century namesake, Father Jacques Marquette, students, faculty and staff members share a passion for exploring uncharted territory, whether it’s in a textbook or their own hearts.
As an educational institution, Marquette University High School is privileged to be a part of a Jesuit educational system in the United States which includes colleges, universities and high schools. It shares the experience and the careful planning of the other schools in the system. Marquette University High School is fully accredited by the North Central Association of Colleges and Secondary Schools and is a member of the National Catholic Educational Association and the Jesuit Secondary Education Association.
We invite you to explore the history of Marquette University High School, our Jesuit heritage, the mission of our institution, and the stories behind the men and women who serve this wonderful school. The Christian leadership qualities of both St. Ignatius, founder of the Society of Jesus, and Father Marquette are rooted in their faith, courage, vision and generous concern for others and continue to inspire us even today.
