The 2016-2017 school year is going to be exciting for us! We are one of nine Milwaukee County Catholic schools chosen to implement an exceptional educational model and be a part of the collaborative network of Seton Catholic Schools.
As part of this new initiative by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee, we are now collaborating as an active network that is strengthening the educational, community, and faith experiences of students, staff and community members.
Collaboration has a rich history in the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. More than twenty years ago, education pioneers in areas like Beaver Dam and Waukesha redefined how we approach Catholic education – both in the classroom and in administrative support. Today, 24 of the 97 Catholic elementary schools in the archdiocese exist due to mergers of previously independent parish schools.
Seton Catholic Schools continues this tradition of collaboration that has worked relentlessly to improve education for the children of Milwaukee County. Moving into the future, this network seeks to improve student academic performance as part of the Seton Approach. It’s a holistic educational model for success.
As participants in the Milwaukee and Wisconsin Parental Choice programs, Catholic education is becoming more accessible for families of all socio-economic backgrounds through Seton Catholic Schools. The network promotes engagement between the school, parish and community.
By strengthening schools, the parishes and neighborhoods will also be strengthened: after all, it is said – it takes a village to raise a child.
