About Us

Catholic schools in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee uniquely balance faith and education. We do more than prepare students for tests in the classroom. We prepare them for tests in life.

A Catholic education proves its value in its superior academic excellence.

Post-Secondary Education
Catholic elementary and secondary schools lay a solid foundation for continuing education.  More than 99% of students in Catholic schools graduate, and 94% go on to college.  Studies show that graduates of Catholic schools are reliable workers, good citizens, and more likely to practice their faith.
A Catholic education proclaims its values in its solid spiritual foundation.
  • Students participate in daily prayer and religion classes, have frequent opportunities for worship and Mass attendance, and receive sacramental preparation.
  • The teachings of Jesus Christ are infused into every subject and extra-curricular activity.
  • Students are taught to be respectful and compassionate, and emphasis is placed not only on academic achievement, but on moral and spiritual growth.
