Welcome to Marquette Manor Baptist Academy

Our goal is to foster an educational environment where our students will grow and develop intellectually, socially, culturally, physically, and, most importantly, spiritually.

Through strong academics, spiritual discipline, competitive athletics, and enriching fine arts, we think you’ll agree that MMBA is a spiritual oasis where God’s hand is evident in the lives of our staff, current students, and graduates.

Strong Academics

Starting in K5, where students learn to read, and continuing through each academic year to twelfth grade, our classrooms are designed so maximum learning takes place. Our high school is college preparatory in its curriculum with most of our graduates continuing on to higher education.

Spiritual Emphasis

All curriculum and study seeks to help students develop a Biblical worldview and a framework for making wise choices, thus providing a secure environment where students are shielded from unbiblical influences. Students at all levels participate in daily Bible classes and weekly chapel programs.

Enriching Fine Arts

Because of financial pressures, many schools find themselves reducing or eliminating their fine arts programs. At MMBA, we consider fine arts a staple of what we offer, and by high school, most students compete in both state and national fine arts competitions.

Competitive Athletics

We strive to create an environment where character, well-rounded growth, and faith-based principles thrive through competitive athletics. Involvement in athletics teaches students teamwork, discipline and resilience while instilling the values of honoring God with their bodies.

I attended Marquette Manor Baptist Academy from 1st through 12th grade. The school did an excellent job of preparing me academically for college and graduate school and preparing me spiritually to be a husband, father, and active member of my church. I’m thrilled to be sending my children to Marquette Manor Baptist Academy, where I know they will receive a well-balanced education in academics, sports, fine arts, and faith.
