Marquette Catholic High School Principal, James G. White, announced that a freeze will be placed on tuition for the 2015-2016 academic year.
Marquette Catholic High School has a rich, 129-year history in Northwest Indiana as the first Catholic, college preparatory school in the area and the only Catholic high school in LaPorte County. The faith formation, family-like environment and academic and athletic successes of the students makes Marquette a school that students want to attend – which is evident in the projected enrollment for this coming Fall.
“I came to Marquette from Queen of All Saints in Michigan City. I always wanted to come to school here, for as long as I can remember," Sophomore Natalie Kendricks states. "Not because my friends were coming here. Not because it is a small school. I always wanted to come to Marquette because I always knew that it is the best school around. I know I will always be challenged here. I know that my best will always be expected of me – from both my teachers and my peers. I look forward to coming to school and I am excited to see where I go from here.”
“Our current tuition for our American day students is $7,450 for the academic year," says White. "The tuition for our international students is $9,000. We will maintain this tuition rate for the 2015-2016 academic year It is important to us that we preserve our affordability for our families. Annually, our tuition is the lowest among all of the non-public schools in the area and we plan to keep it that way. We realize the financial sacrifice many of our families make when they entrust their children to us. Our parents, however, do realize though that this sacrifice is a true investment in their child. I am proud to be able to “freeze” the cost of tuition for this upcoming academic year. I think it speaks to the future of our growing school community.”
