Father Marquette Elementary School

  • The purpose of the Father Marquette Catholic School system is to nourish young people in faith and in development of their spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical growth.
  • The school system is a partner with parents in providing a comprehensive quality education for our students.
  • Guided by the Holy Spirit, we accept the Church's mandate to share the Gospel message by building a strong sense of community while providing opportunities for Christian leadership and service.
  • With continued Christian guidance and education excellence, our students will become responsible and independent young adults with a strong sense of Christian leadership and service to the community.
  • It is our vision that the Christian values and quality education provided during these developmental years will give our students the “roots” they need for future growth in all areas of life.
