Marquette Catholic High School

Marquette Catholic High School, a coeducational institution of the Diocese of Springfield in Illinois, offers quality education in the Catholic tradition to families of all backgrounds.
Through the Serviam motto, the Marquette Community is challenged to integrate Christ's message into their lives, and thereby carry into the world.
Marquette Catholic High School supports parents in the educational ministry of their children.
Our focus on the uniqueness of each individual within the community and our concern for growth in wholeness and holiness are central to fostering Gospel values. Formed by religious virtues and educated academically and morally, students are inspired to seek truth and nurture mutual respect. Through extracurricular and sports offerings, Marquette Catholic provides development of the social and physical potential of each student.
With Jesus as our model of faith, we celebrate our Ursuline tradition, and with Diocesan leadership we look hopefully to our future through ongoing service to family, church, and community.
