Marquette High School believes in the importance of answering the needs of individual students.
Part of adolescent growth is the development of relationships—with parents and family members, faculty, coaches, staff and peers. To guide each student in this development, Marquette High supports an extensive advising process designed to assist students with issues related to academic growth as well as the emotional, pastoral and social needs that arise in the course of four years of high school.
The central focus of this program is the student advisor. During the spring of each school year, students are given the opportunity to select an adult faculty member as his advisor. Students meet with their advisors on a quarterly basis. These meetings provide an important opportunity for them to discuss grades, academic progress, difficulties in school, plans for college, testing opportunities and course selection. The academic advisor also acts as the guidance representative for college recommendation letters. The academic advisor serves as the primary contact person for students and parents/guardians throughout the school year.
