Marquette University High School is a Catholic, Jesuit school for young men from a five-county area in and surrounding Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A Marquette education aims not only for the mind, but also the heart and soul. It's a transformational education that challenges students to develop as men of character, compassion, and conscience. In the Jesuit tradition, the school emphasizes academic excellence, as well as personal and spiritual growth in preparing young men for college and subsequent leadership in the community. A highly skilled faculty challenges and respects each student's talents, needs, and potential with a rigorous course of study.

A distinctive feature of MUHS is cura personalis, which calls for individualized attention to the needs of students with distinct care for their well-being and development as a whole person. This core value has been lived out during the pandemic, particularly through the school's advising program. This program is designed to assist students with issues related to academic growth as well as the emotional, pastoral, and social needs that arise in high school. Each student has an advisor who provides individualized care and support through biweekly meetings.

There are a variety of co-curricular activities to facilitate healthy social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development. The school offers exemplary STEM offerings including Science Olympiad, Robotics, Engineering Club, and SMART Team. An active campus ministry program, involving community service, retreats, and liturgies, promotes religious growth of students as "men for others" with Jesus Christ as the model and inspiration of the community.
