All of our fifteen schools are accredited through WRISA (Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation). This accreditation ensures quality education as well as continued growth and school improvement. Our schools boast strong curriculums that include: Religion, Language Arts, Science, Math, Social Studies, Music, Art, World Religions, and Computer Technology. Some individual schools expand on their curricular offerings beyond these mentioned. Average instructional time for grades 1-8 is 1170 hours per year. Eight of our schools offer an extended day program and thirteen schools offer athletic programs – mainly volleyball, basketball, soccer, softball, baseball, track and golf.
Every school maintains qualified teachers and staff to educate and provide a safe and sacred environment for our children. 184 of our teachers either maintain or are working toward their Ministry of Catechesis Certification. The children in our Catholic schools are a foundation for religious growth and carrying on the faith for future generations. We believe in providing the most current educational practices and ideologies while still maintaining the foundation of the Catholic Church.
Wisconsin Religious and Independent Schools Accreditation (WRISA) is a nonprofit organization formed in 1991 by the Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools to provide non-public schools with an ongoing school improvement process.
WRISA's three phase accreditation process provides school communities with the opportunity to explore every aspect of their school program, receive valuable feedback from a team of impartial professional educators, and develop a long range plan using the WRISA framework. Once accredited, schools file an annual report documenting that they are in compliance with the WRISA Standards and that they have made progress on their long range plan.
WRISA is a state chapter of the National Federation of Nonpublic School State Accrediting Associations which is recognized by the College Board and the Office of Non-Public Education, an office within the U. S. Department of Education.
