The Milwaukee area boasts exceptional schools, both public and
private. Private, parochial schools of various denominations
offer families a faith-centered, values-based education that
embraces the whole individual – mind, body and spirit – while
adhering to high academic standards. The 94 elementary and 15
high schools of the
Catholic Archdiocese of Milwaukee
aim to
transform local and global communities by providing a quality
Christian education that encompasses academic achievement
integrated with moral and spiritual growth. The
Missouri Synod
and the
Wisconsin Synod
of the
Lutheran Church
also offer
faith-based education throughout the region, as do some
independent Christian schools. Elementary schools are typically
associated with a church, which can provide specific information
about the school including cost. Parochial high schools operate
independently. Information about high schools can be found on
page 46.
