A Message from Our Principal

Dear Parent,

Welcome to the Father Marquette Catholic School family! We look forward to working with you and your child! Our faculty is committed to the intellectual, physical, social, emotional, and spiritual growth of each of our children.

Interesting facts about our school system:

  • We provide a school environment where faith and knowledge meet.
  • We build a strong sense of community while providing opportunities for leadership and service.
  • We hire only the best certified teachers accredited by the State of Michigan.
  • Our students consistently score high on the norm-referenced tests and the state MEAP test.
  • We give our students more individual attention with our small class sizes.
  • We encourage active participation by parents and have a large core of parent volunteers.
  • We ensure that all staff and volunteers have training in the “Protecting God’s Children” program as part of an ongoing effort to help create and maintain a safe environment.
  • The school curriculum offers the core subjects (math, science, language arts, religion and social studies) along with art, music, and physical education, chorus, band, forensics, and multi-media technology.
  • Students make use of the latest technology. An active staff and parent Technology Committee works to keep equipment up-to-date and students “in the know.”
