A Culture of Giving

As Marquette nears its centennial, our record of academic excellence is owed to the generosity of past and current parents, community leaders and alumni who give generously to ensure the availability of Catholic education in our community.

We are proud of our strong legacy as a college prep institution which prepares our students to "not simply get into, but graduate" from college.

With eight years of continued enrollment growth, continously expanding performing and fine arts programs, excellence on the athletic fields and most importantly - in the classroom, we owe our success to dedicated faculty, engaged parents, inspiring students and the continued support of many donors. 

Currently, Marquette must annually cover a $1,100 per-student gap between the revenues received from tuition and fees and the actual expenes of operating the school.  An additional 40 percent of MCHS students receive financial assistance and/or merit based scholarships to offset tuition, currently $6,400.
