President's Message

Whether you are exploring Marquette High for the first time or have been a part of our community for a long time, I welcome you and thank you for your interest in our school.

Marquette High is a special place filled with amazing people who support every aspect of our existence to ensure the young men who come through our doors become "Christ-like men for others."

Marquette University High School is an all-boys, Catholic School in the Jesuit tradition. The Society of Jesus (Jesuits) has been in the education business for more than 450 years. I am proud to say Marquette High has shared that successful history for nearly 160 of those years. It is true that we are known for academic excellence, however, our commitment is to educating the whole person — the spiritual, emotional, intellectual, artistic, moral and physical.

Marquette High's commitment to faith, scholarship and community means we help young men develop not only their minds but also a personal relationship with God, an understanding of the world around them, and their responsibility to others. You can certainly find other schools that offer strong academic programs and good co-curriculars. Marquette offers both, but in addition, is committed to the moral and faith development of young men at a time we believe is most critical. That is what sets us apart.

A Marquette High education provides a strong foundation that allows our alumni to define success as being happy and "Men for Others." It teaches our young men to understand early in life that money and title can be the by-product of living a successful life, but not the measure. We want our alumni to flourish in their careers, but just as important be loving sons, husbands, fathers, brothers, uncles, and religious or community leaders.

Marquette High education creates a lifelong network of faith, community and career support for all our alumni and their families. It's what we do; it's who we are.

God's blessings,

Rev. Michael J. Marco, S.J.
