About Catholic Schools

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 foundation.

  • The average elementary student performs at or above the 71st national percentile on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills, and maintains this high performance over five years across all subjects.
  • The average high school senior achieves an average composite ACT score of 23.4, higher than the Wisconsin state average of 22.1 and the national average of 20.9.
  • Catholic schools in the archdiocese have a graduation rate of 99% and 94% go on to colllege.
  • All elementary and high schools are accredited.

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.
