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.
