Admissions Process



Admissions Process

  • All applicants must submit an application completed by a parent or guardian and a $30 non-refundable application fee to MUHS.

  • Applications are still being accepted. Students who apply after Dec. 1 will make arrangements with the Admissions office to take the entrance exam.

  • The application includes a personal essay that needs to be written by the student and uploaded before the application can be successfully submitted. The writing prompt for the personal essay is:
    Why do you want to attend Marquette University High School and how do you envision the school will help you grow as a young man? What individual strengths or qualities do you possess and how will you contribute these gifts to the MUHS community?

  • All applicants must take the MUHS Entrance Exam. Registration for the Entrance Exam is completed as part of the Admissions application. Students who apply after Dec. 1 will make arrangements with the Admissions office to take the entrance exam.

  • Once a student has submitted an application and has completed the entrance exam, MUHS will request his academic records and a teacher evaluation from his current school.
