Instructor of Faith Formation
At the heart of a Catholic education is the mission. The mission is what animates and directs all that is done within our educational institution.
Faith formation – in community and as individuals – plays a vital role in the morals and values that are taught to MQT students each day. MQT is rooted in the beliefs and teachings of the Catholic Church, with opportunities for participation given to all students, faculty, staff, parents, and alumni who bring to us a variety of faith journeys and religious backgrounds. All are invited to explore first-hand the Catholic Christian teachings that are at the heart of the Marquette Catholic High School experience.
Because faith helps define our identity, all Marquette students are required to earn a minimum of seven (7) Theology credits.

In everything we do, we believe in challenging the traditional way of educating our students. We believe in thinking critically and inspiring them to do the same. We do this by encouraging themto be driven, to be global, to be passionate, to be connected, to dind faith, to discover God and to work for the Common Good. We ask our students to embrace high expectations, to become exceptional and, ultimately, change the world. #moreatMQTT
