2024–2025 School year

    We understand that selecting the right school for your child is one of the most important decisions you will make. We are delighted that you are considering FMCA and feel strongly that you will not be disappointed. 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 several reasons. 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 the 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.

    Please note that FMCA 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.

    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.
