MILWAUKEE — Marquette University and Catholic Memorial High School in Waukesha have announced a partnership which establishes a clear path for students from Catholic Memorial to attend Marquette.

The Marquette University and Catholic Memorial High School Advantage Program allows Catholic Memorial graduates to enroll at Waukesha County Technical College or UWM–Waukesha before transferring to Marquette to complete their college education. The program enables students to continue their Catholic education and save tuition dollars.

“Catholic Memorial students and families continue to demonstrate a commitment to the very best of what a Catholic education has to offer in terms of a strong sense of dignity for all, ethical leadership skills and a commitment to serve others,” said Brian Troyer, dean of admissions at Marquette. “As a Catholic, Jesuit institution, Marquette University is proud to live out those values while offering a transformational education for our students.”

In addition to a pathway to admission at Marquette, students in the program will also benefit from the university’s resources from the beginning. Each student will have a peer mentor and academic adviser working with them from the beginning to ensure that their path to Marquette is clear, Troyer added. They will also have access to campus libraries, student organizations and participating in intramural sports.

This program mirrors the Avenue Advantage program with Marquette University High School, where MUHS graduates can attend Milwaukee Area Technical College after high school with transfer admission to Marquette.
