Study Skills Boot Camp

Study Skills Boot Camp

August 5-8, 2019

This four-day camp led by MUHS faculty will expose incoming freshmen to study skills vital during their four years at Marquette University High School and beyond. The program will help freshmen begin their Jesuit, college-prep education better prepared to develop their intellect, foster moral and spiritual growth and forge new friendships with classmates.

Cost: $150 per student. Payment required at time of registration.

Sessions (50 students per session):

  • Morning: 8 a.m. - 11:30 a.m. - Session Full
  • Afternoon: 1 p.m. - 4:30 p.m.


  • Incoming freshmen who do not participate in academic summer school.
  • Sign-up is first-come, first-served.
  • If a student plans to play football, register for the morning session.

At this multi-faceted camp, students will:

  • Better understand the demands of a Jesuit education which focuses on the “whole person.”
  • Learn practical approaches for using computer technology, note-taking, time management, memory improvement, basic research and library skills, writing papers, test-taking, and critical reading skills in all disciplines.
  • Meet with faculty from each academic department who will share study skill best practices for their respective academic discipline.
  • Participate in team-building exercises and strategy sessions for getting involved in school activities and making new friends.
