What sets us apart?

  • Marquette Academy Preschool is both academic and play based (most others are just play based).
  • Our kiddos are exposed to letters early on and are able to read/write most of their ABC's by the end of the year!
  • They are also introduced to beginning math skills, shapes, and colors.
  • Lessons are carried out in an age appropriate way such as using music, dance, story telling, and play! Students are instructed through both small and large group activities.
  • We cover all areas of development (cognitive, social/emotional, physical, and spiritual).
  • Kids get a visit from Father Krengiel once a month to discuss faith and do a fun activity. 
  • Marquette Academy is family. Choosing our preK truly means choosing a close-knit family community that they will have for the rest of their educational career.
  • Power Preschool is 5 full days a week with mornings being traditional curriculum, and in the afternoon kids are exposed to art, music, physical education and Spanish. Afternoons build off the foundational curriculum they learn in the morning through extension activities.
