The students, faculty and staff of Marquette University High School invite you to spend a day visiting our school through our Campus Visit Program. On the day you visit, a student host will take you to his classes. At noon, you will eat lunch in the student cafeteria and meet other MUHS students. We will pair a prospective student with a current sophomore who shares similar interests or you can request a student that you already know. Eighth-grade students can shadow anytime during the school year. Seventh-grade students are invited to shadow in the second semester. Online registration is available under "Campus Visit Program."
The entrance exam will be held on Friday, Nov. 4, 2016 and Saturday, Nov. 5, 2016 from 8 a.m. until Noon. Registration is required and a completed application must be submitted prior to taking the exam.
A Make-up Exam will be offered on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2016.
Students should arrive for the exam no later than 7:30 a.m.
The mission of the MUHS Parent Network is to be a vehicle of communication that provides support for parents through education and networking. The Parent Partnership is a program where parents are encouraged to financially support the school by helping make up the difference between tuition and the actual cost of educating an MUHS student.
The MUHS athletic program is one of the most successful in the state, not only in terms of accomplishments but – and more importantly – in participation. Annually, 60 percent of MUHS students participate in a sport. This level of participation emphasizes our commitment to providing ample opportunities for student participation. While the MUHS sports program is competitive, it is also the school’s philosophy to include as many students as is reasonably possible. Therefore, there is at least one no-cut varsity sport in every season and there are two freshman teams in multiple sports. There also are club sports and intramural teams available to students based on their interest.
