NEW! MAximizing Education with Chromebooks!

We are excited to announce our low cost technology for modern learning program available to all high school students. As of the 2017-18 school year, each freshman and sophomore are required to purchase their own personal Chromebook for $250. Parents may pay this fee at registration or include it in their monthly payment. The Chromebook is theirs to keep. Juniors and seniors have the option to buy, or they can use one of the school-owned Chromebooks. Marquette Academy is making the shift to be 1:1 with personalized Chromebooks by the 2019 school year.

Using Chromebooks gives students a personlized learning experience and partners with the google software and google classroom trainings that our teachers are enrolled in. The technology keeps students engaged and teaches effective work habits early on in a student's academic career. The chromebooks are easy to manage and are free from malware and viruses. They offer safe online learning for every student where undesirable sites and apps can be blocked. This technology benefits every students and helps prepare them for the ever-changing world of internet based learning.

Students moving into the area may apply for admission to Marquette Academy at any time. Students transferring into Marquette Academy from area schools once the school year has already begun will be accepted on a probationary basis. During the time of probation (nine weeks), transfer students will be expected to maintain passing grades in all subjects and to be involved in no major disciplinary situations. If the student does not meet the probationary requirements, his acceptance may be withdrawn.

Transfer students from area schools normally are not accepted during the final quarter of the school year. Students seeking admission at a time other than the beginning of ninth grade will be admitted subject to the following criteria:

1. Interviews with the administration
2. Formal evidence of successful completion of work at another school
3. Required health records
4. Character reference from the school previously attended
5. Drug Screening
