Welcome to Marquette Academy!
Uniform Polo Order Form
The required uniform for all high school students is any color pants/shorts (no jeans or cargo pants) and a polo shirt with the MA logo. You can download and return the polo order form (below) to Diane Whalen in the Advancement Office, with a check made out to 'Identities'. (Please note: Uniform polo shirts take 2 weeks to process as they are custom ordered. Make sure to order soon so your child can be in dress code on the first day of school)
We offer After Care for all preschool and elementary students until 5:00pm for working parents. Please contact the Elementary Campus at 815-433-1199 for details.

MAXIMIZING EDUCATION WITH CHROMEBOOKS!
We are excited to announce our low cost technology for modern learning program available to all high school students. 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 has made the shift to be 1:1 with personalized Chromebooks.
Using Chromebooks gives students a personalized 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 student and helps prepare them for the ever-changing world of internet based learning.
