Academic Departments

Academic excellence is a hallmark of the Marquette University High School experience.

Faculty and administration work to ensure that each student has an opportunity to meet his learning needs and interests. Following in the tradition of Jesuit education, the academic environment establishes a foundation for future study with its liberal arts curriculum. At the same time, an MUHS education encourages a sense of critical thought as students develop leadership skills in a classroom setting. MUHS offers a wide variety of courses designed to give students a solid foundation for lifelong learning.

 

The focus of the academic program is the college-bound student, fortified by Accelerated Courses and the Advanced Placement Program (A.P.), which offers college credit options.

Each year 98 percent of MUHS graduates enroll in a college or university of their choice, with many receiving scholarships and academic recognition. College scholarships worth more than $4.2 million (averaging nearly $18,000 per student) were awarded to the Class of 2010. Over the past five years, MUHS students have enrolled in more than 150 different colleges and universities in the United States and abroad.
