2020-2021 School year

As long as the Upper Peninsula of Michigan remains in Phase 4 or Phase 5, FMCA will open on September 8 for face-to-face learning, Monday through Friday. Our class sizes have been capped at 15 students per class to ensure that our students can remain six feet apart while seated for learning. FMCA is prepared for all scenarios, including a robust distance learning program, in the event that the UP enters Phase 3 or lower.

For more information, please feel free to email or call our office. Our classes are filling 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.
