Northwest Catholic School serves a diverse urban community through strong academics and service rooted in the Catholic tradition. Its presence in the community began in 2009 when St. Bernadette, St. Catherine of Alexandria, and Our Lady of Good Hope Schools joined together to provide a high-quality, faith-based education for students in the area.
While located just a few blocks apart, two campuses make up Northwest Catholic School. The school’s focus is on educating the whole child — mind, body, and spirit.
Northwest Catholic School’s strong academic program is augmented by specialty academic programs to help students succeed in the classroom.
For example, through Milwaukee Succeeds and SHARP Literacy, students participate in interactive learning, and have access to additional resources and field trips. Teachers are able to boost student reading and writing achievement through these engaging and memorable learning experiences.
To enhance the reading ability of K5 to third grade students, Northwest Catholic School offers tutoring through Reading Corps. Students receive one-on-one tutoring on a daily basis from a Reading Corps volunteer. When a student reaches their individual benchmark goals, they “graduate” from the program.
Northwest Catholic School is a special place with an engaging, vibrant school community. Part of the school’s success is driven by a number of “truths” they embrace including:
- Each person has God-given human dignity, is unique, and deserves to be treated with utmost respect.
- A Christ-centered approach to holistic education, focused on Gospel values, enhances our community and our world.
- Developing self-worth, self-esteem, and self-control are at the heart of successful learning.
