About MUHS

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.

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.

As an educational institution, MUHS is privileged to be a part of a Jesuit educational system in the United States which includes colleges, universities and high schools. 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.


“MUHS is a tremendous institution. I would not be where I am today without the many opportunities and challenges it provided me spiritually, intellectually and physically.”
