The three schools which now make up the Waukesha Catholic School System were originally separate. After much discussion and hard work, it was decided to realign the campus structures to create two elementary campuses and one middle school campus. Consolidation was achieved in 1990. By coming together, each school’s expertise and resources could be pooled to better serve the students and the Catholic community of Waukesha.
As one of the first Catholic school systems in the Milwaukee Archdiocese to consolidate, Waukesha Catholic has become a model for other Catholic parish schools to follow.
The administration and staff of the Waukesha Catholic School System is committed to excellence in Catholic Christian education. We are fully accredited by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee on a seven-year cycle. Our most recent accreditation took place in the fall of 2011.
The Waukesha Catholic School System is also accredited by the Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Association (WRISA) on an annual basis.
We comply with all standards set forth by these organizations and the Wisconsin Department of Public Instruction. All teachers are state-certified.
