Here, we will nourish your pre-kindergarten through 4th grade children in the Catholic faith as they develop their spiritual, academic, social, emotional, and physical needs.

Located in Marquette, Michigan our beautiful campus is well known for our services in the core subjects, art, P.E., and music. Above all, our school is an extension of the home, as we find parents to be the primary educators in a child’s life.

A Message from our Principal

Dear Friends,

Selecting a school for your child is a challenging and difficult process. Whether you are starting or continuing your child’s educational journey, I hope you would consider Father Marquette Catholic School. 

Our mission at Father Marquette Catholic School is to instill the spiritual, educational, ethical, moral, and social skills your child will need to be successful in the 21st century. Our skilled teachers create a rigorous academic environment supported by the teachings of Jesus and the truths of the Catholic faith. It is our belief that school is an extension of home and the positive partnerships we form with parents enhance and support our mission. 

Class sizes are small and allow each student to receive individual attention. Our students grow to become responsible and independent young adults with a strong sense of Christian leadership and dedication to service in the community. Our academic programs are complemented by diverse curricular and extra-curricular offerings. 

Father Marquette Catholic School has set the standard for education in the Marquette area for many years. We are proud to provide a comprehensive educational opportunity for our students in a supportive and faith-based community.

If you have an interest in learning more about our school, or would like to arrange a visit, please call the office at (906) 225-1129. We look forward to having you join our school family.
