Welcome to Father Marquette Middle School

We welcome you to Father Marquette Catholic Academy, a private school in Marquette, Michigan. Our school provides pre-kindergarten through 8th graders a high-quality learning environment within a faith-filled community of believers and followers of Jesus Christ. Our professional and Christian educators consider it a privilege to educate our community's children.

We invite you to browse our website and learn more about us. We hope our site will help foster effective communication between home and school. If you should ever have any concerns or wish to speak with us, you are always welcome to contact us. We're glad to have you at our school and hope you will become an active member of the Father Marquette family.

A Message from our Principal

Dear Families,

I hope you are enjoying this beautiful U.P. summer. I love the long sunny days, just like I did when I summered in Baraga as a child. Who could go to bed when it was still light outside? Not me.

Bishop John Doerfler has approved our name change to Father Marquette Catholic Academy. This reflects the implementation of the classical curriculum and commences a new chapter here at our school. A beautiful new logo displays our new school colors - navy blue and gold.

Here in the school office, we have been busy. We are learning the new student management system (Teacherease) and transferring information from Ascend, our former system that went out of business.

We have good news from MAPS. Although we can never replace Mr. Taylor and all that he gave to our school, next year we will have a MAPS shared-time teacher for art in grades k-8, at no cost to Father Marquette Catholic Academy. We will share more information as it becomes available.

I am continually amazed at our parent (and grandparent!) volunteers. Your service, ideas and enthusiasm give me much encouragement. When we all work together, FMCA will be the best it can be for our children and families.

I look forward to seeing the kids in September. The school halls are strangely quiet without them!

In His Name,

Mary Jo Scamperle
