Educating the Mind, Body, and Spirit

Welcome Letter from the Principal

On behalf of the Marquette Catholic School community and the Parish of Christ the King,  I welcome you learn more about Marquette Catholic School. We are very proud of our community and look forward to sharing the many benefits of our school through the information contained in this website.  At Marquette, we exist to bring a Christ centered approach to educating your child in mind, body and spirit.  Since its founding in 1918 as Sacred Heart School under the direction of the Ursuline Sisters, Marquette has a long tradition of academic excellence. That tradition continues today as we educate our children for the world of tomorrow.

Combined with outstanding academics, Marquette students receive an education that nurtures their spirit and heart. Participating in weekly Masses as well as mission projects in and out of school, our children develop empathy and compassion for the less fortunate. These experiences will enable them as future leaders to govern not only with their minds but also with a conscience.  

The purpose of Marquette Catholic School is to use our commitment to faith and pursuit of academic excellence to evangelize, educate and form students as disciples who enthusiastically bring Christ to their families, fellow parishioners, and the larger community while preparing for success in their academic and future professional lives.

I warmly welcome you to our community and look forward to assisting you further.


-Jay Luetkemeyer, Principal
