Campus Visit Program
Campus Visit Program
The students, faculty and staff of Marquette University High School invites all prospective students to spend a day visiting our school.
Eighth-grade students are encouraged to spend a day at Marquette High anytime during their eighth-grade school year (September – April). Seventh-grade students who can't wait to see what being a Hilltopper is all about can visit during the spring semester of seventh grade (January – April).
Answers to questions such as "What will high school be like?," "How will I fit in?" or "What's for lunch?" are common questions and best answered by an in-person visit during a regular school day. It's truly the best way to experience what it is really like to be a student at Marquette High. You will sit in on classes, eat lunch with current students, meet faculty and take a tour of the building.
Campus Visits are set up through the Admissions Office. Visiting students will be matched with a Hilltopper Ambassador with common interests. Visit dates (September – April) are posted on the school's website. Students arrive by 7:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. on Thursdays due to "Late Start") and can be picked up at 3 p.m.
Campus Visit Program for Parents
Parents are invited to attend a 30-minute coffee time and brief presentation after dropping off their sons. Following the presentation, an optional 30-minute highlight building tour will be available for interested parents.
- Visiting students should arrive by 7:30 a.m. (8:30 a.m. on Thursdays due to "Late Start") and report to the main office, which is located in the Gordon Henke Center on 34th and Michigan. You will meet your host in the main office.
- During the lunch period, visiting students will eat lunch in the Cannon Commons and meet other MUHS students. They will receive a lunch voucher to spend as they choose. Some students bring their own money in case they would like to buy additional food at lunch or a snack during the day.
- Prospective students are advised to bring a book to read during the study hall period or if a teacher gives a quiz/test during class.
- Prospective students must follow the student dress code. Appropriate dress is a collared shirt with khakis, cargos or jeans.
- If a student is visiting on an All-School Mass day, they will be required to wear a shirt, tie, dress pants (khakis are fine) and dress shoes.
- Students can be picked up at 3 p.m. The student will be brought back to the Gordon Henke Center entrance where he began his day. The MUHS school day ends at 3:10 p.m.
