Catholic East Elementary 

Teachers encourage the development of Catholic virtues, attitudes, and habits necessary for Christ-like living in our society.

The mission of Catholic East Elementary School, a richly diverse Catholic community, is to pursue academic excellence, nurture strong moral development and foster lifelong learning through living out the Gospel values.

To cultivate lifelong love of learning, teachers emphasize core academic skills using a sequential curriculum with exposure to different learning and cultural activities, thereby recognizing and working with student’s strengths and weaknesses.

Students start every day with a morning prayer and attend religion class daily. Prayers are also said before lunch and at the end of the day. Mass is celebrated weekly, on Holy Days and for other special occasions.

Teachers provide experiences that nurture students’ attitudes of accountability, self-worth, freedom and respect. In addition, they encourage students to be goal-oriented, helping them reach their full potential.

Now enrolling students for the 2024-25 school year!

The most significant investment you’ll make in your child and your child’s future is their education. Catholic education is an investment in academic excellence and spiritual formation, where students are taught to live out the Gospel values to reach their full God-given potential. Where they attend school and the teachers and staff they interact with matters. Our schools are warm and welcoming environments where children are nurtured, cared for and loved. As Catholic, mission-driven schools, your children also come to know God and His deep and everlasting love for your child. 

Please explore the opportunities for enrollment in our school. We’re here to help answer any questions and take you and your student on tour of our school.  We look forward to meeting you!

Faith plays a large role in the daily life at Catholic East with everyday staring off with a school-wide morning prayer and announcements.

Faculty and staff demonstrate their faith through their actions and help students mature spiritually through religious instruction, prayer and the Eucharistic celebration of the sacraments. At every grade level, students have the opportunity to develop a personal relationship with God by participating in weekly liturgy, in daily prayer and in daily religion class.

Catholic East offers many opportunities for young students to learn and grow in a safe environment. They offer 3K and 4K programs and wrap-around care as well.

Students with strong minds need strong bodies, which is why students are encouraged to participate in athletics to maintain strong bodies at a young age.

Students in 5th through 8th grade at Catholic East Elementary participate in girls volleyball and girls and boys basketball teams. We are a participating member of the North Shore Parochial League of Southeastern Wisconsin.
