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!

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.

Join us in saying our #iGiveCatholic Prayer
O Lord, the giver of life, we know that all we are, and all we have are gifts from you. We live in a world that celebrates consumption. But You call us to be good stewards of all you have entrusted to us. May this #Giving Tuesday prompt us to gratitude and generosity, that brings nourishment to the hungry and hope to the hopeless. We pray that #GiveCatholic may be a miracle of loaves and fishes, where every gift shared lovingly from a grateful heart becomes bread for the multitudes, and the ordinary becomes extraordinary. In this giving and receiving, may our hearts rejoice in You alone, who is Lord forever and ever. Amen.
