Explorers Club

If you are a parent of a Marquette student you are automatically a member of the Marquette Explorers Club. As a member you are invited and encouraged to attend our meetings and functions. We meet on the 2nd Tuesday of the month during the school year. Interested persons who do not have a child enrolled at Marquette are still welcome to join for a membership fee of $20 (refer to annual membership letter on Explorers Club Event tab).  Our purpose is to enhance Marquette Catholic High School, both the academic and extra-curricular activities. During the school year we host three types of events: Booster, Social, and Fundraisers. Check out our Events page for more information.

Check out THIS incentive to volunteer! Turn your TIME - TALENT - TREASURES into a chance to win.
