Congratulations to our 2021 graduating eighth grade class!

8th Grade Class of 2021

    2021-2022 School year

    It is with excitement that we will open the 2021–2022 school year registration to the community on February 17. Additionally, on February 17, we invite new families to visit FMCA for a modified open house, enrollment night, from 6:00 to 7:30 p.m. We understand that selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. It brings us great delight you are considering FMCA and feel strongly that we will not disappoint. The front office team will serve as a resource for you as you evaluate whether FMCA is a good fit for your family or as you become acclimated with FMCA.

    Families are drawn to FMCA for a number of key reasons. We have small class sizes that allow for individualized interactions between children and teachers. FMCA will both love and challenge your child/children, and you will never have to worry about them getting lost in the crowd. Our students learn classically. They are not covering a vast amount of material at surface level but exploring important and relevant subjects in-depth. After all, learning is more than just getting through the materials. It is about covering the materials well and allowing students the opportunity to wonder about the good, the true and the beautiful. At FMCA, there is a recognizable balance between high standards and grace. All children participate in the faith-filled classroom life and are always challenged to grow spiritually and intellectually, as faith and academics are the cornerstones of our school.

    With great excitement, FMCA announces that tuition will remain the same for the 2021-2022 school year for grades kindergarten through eight. We understand that these are challenging times, and we want to help in any way that we can. FMCA also offers generous scholarships, and each year we do our best to offer affordable tuition for each and every family.  

    We look forward to building a relationship and a future with you and your family. Please do not hesitate to reach out with any questions you might have.

    For more information, please feel free to email or call our office (906) 225-1129. Our classes fill up quickly! Call for your tour today!

    Guardian Angels Annual Appeal

    Guardian Angels

    We are pleased to announce the Father Marquette Catholic Academy Guardian Angels Annual Appeal. This campaign is critically important for the future of our school and the faithful education of our little disciples, who are the future of our church. We hope and pray you will join us! 

    A successful annual appeal will allow our school to fulfill its mission of providing a superior education that enables children to pursue vigorous academics while growing in their faith and personal virtues. We are preparing students to excel at the next level of education and to achieve success in an ever-changing and challenging society. 

    Your financial support will help us address important and pressing needs for the school. We are planning crucial improvements to our curriculum, including expanding both our arts and music programs. We are hopeful to create a full-time music and band teaching position. We are working towards more equitable salaries and competitive benefits for our teachers. Meeting maintenance and facility expenses is always challenging. Keeping tuition affordable for all families is fundamental to being a Catholic school. With God’s grace and your help, we can meet these important needs.

    This year, in spite of COVID-19 and all the challenges we face, Father Marquette Catholic Academy is open and thriving! Enrollment is up, and there is excitement throughout the school. We are truly grateful for Father Marquette Catholic Academy and the blessing it is for everyone.

    We invite you to make a generous donation to the annual appeal. Become a guardian angel! Your gift will make a difference. Thank you for believing in our mission and the children!

    Mission Statement

    Centered in the person of Jesus Christ and grounded in the teachings of the Catholic Church, Father Marquette Catholic Academy is a mission of four Marquette parishes. Partnering with parents, we work to form students into disciples who will go forth to improve the world around them. We accomplish this by uniting the pursuits of faith and reason. Through rigorous academics grounded in the perennial classical curriculum and a commitment to personal attention of each student and their growth in virtue, we are dedicated to the complete formation of our students, remembering that in the end, only one thing is necessary.


    Only One Thing is Necessary.
