Marquette Academy Mission Statement

Marquette Academy exists to cooperate with parents in educating and forming joyful disciples of Christ. Traditions are embraced. Dedication is the norm. Excellence is the expectation.

Marquette Academy is a Pre K-12 Roman Catholic learning community that strives to promote spiritual, academic, social/emotional, and physical growth. We believe in developing critical thinking skills, a lifelong love of learning, and preparing our students to enter into an increasingly interconnected society. Traditions are embraced. Dedication is the norm. Excellence is the expectation.

Marquette Academy is a Roman Catholic school community consisting of students, faculty, staff, parents and alumni under the direction of the Bishop of Peoria.

Marquette Academy recognizes that every person is created in the image and likeness of God and having an eternal destiny, strives to provide the spiritual, academic, social, emotional and physical formation necessary for an eternal destiny in an ever-changing global society.

We dedicate ourselves to academic excellence, lifelong learning, holistic growth and Christ-like leadership. We believe in the development of the whole person who is value-oriented, competent in communication, and skillful in creative and critical thinking skills.

At Marquette Academy we educate the whole person. What we do is as much formation as it is education. Our interest is not merely in the what but in the who. Certainly we want our graduates to be successful, but we are more interested in what kind of persons they become. Because we are convinced that character is extremely important, we believe the ultimate value is not that they succeed but that they become good men and women in the sight of God and their fellow citizens.

Marquette Academy also serves as a college preparatory school, integrating eternal truth and values into a strong academic program whose goal is to stimulate the spiritual, intellectual, emotional and physical growth of the students, thus enabling them to become competent, concerned, responsible and ethical members of an ever-changing global society.
