Explorer 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.
