Marquette Experience Pathway

The Marquette Experience Pathway

Marquette University High School offers a unique opportunity to sophomores who are interested in exploring Marquette University for college. This opportunity between the two Jesuit institutions is called the Marquette Experience Pathway.

The Pathway program is designed to provide sophomores at MUHS access to exclusive Marquette campus and community touchpoints throughout their MUHS career, enhanced admission counseling during their college application process, and the potential for merit-based scholarships.

The Pathway program is specifically crafted for sophomores at MUHS who are already highly interested in attending Marquette University for college and continuing their Jesuit educational experience.

John Stollenwerk, a 1958 Marquette High alumnus and a 1962 Marquette University alumnus, established the Pathway program along with his wife, JoEllen, a 1966 Marquette University alumna, with a $2.5 million gift. A former member of the both the university and high school's governing boards, John Stollenwerk described his educational experience as a "discipline of love" and also said his family took this step to help reduce the financial burden on families. He touted both schools for their "academic excellence, discipline and education grounded in values."
