Our mission at our Catholic Schools is to provide a quality Catholic Education enhancing the spiritual and intellectual life of our students. Both schools offer a K4 through 8th grade setting with a dedicated staff of lay and religious teachers. Our curriculum offers a traditional Catholic education in English with emphasis on the basics of Reading, Math and Language Arts. 

Holy Wisdom Academy and St. John Kanty School are committed to the faith formation of our students. This is practiced through weekly mass attendance, daily prayer and religious instruction in the classroom, reception of the sacraments and an active involvement in the mission of our Church including devotions to Mary and support of the missions.

Our special programs include music, computers, world languages and physical education. In addition, we offer library, athletics and after-school programs, Scouts, altar servers and many parish activities. We have active Home & School Associations and School Advisory Committees.

Other services include a breakfast and hot lunch program. We participate in the National School Lunch Program. We offer English instruction for parents and adults. Holy Wisdom Academy also offers a four week summer school program for students in K5 through 8th Grade.

Both schools are fully accredited K4-8 Catholic elementary schools with no discrimination on the basis of race, creed or national origin. Both schools participate in the Milwaukee Parental School Choice program which gives children of low income families an opportunity to enroll in a Catholic school.
