Our HistoryWaukesha Catholic has been in existence as a collaborative/consolidated effort since 1990. Previously known as the Waukesha Catholic School System (or WCSS), each campus was operated as its own school but part of a larger system.
Our PresentToday, Waukesha Catholic is one school with three locations: St. William Campus, St. Mary Campus, and St. Joseph Campus. For the 2013-2014 school year, it was decided to restructure our campus arrangement to bring all of the like grades together in one location. This change allowed us to add a K3 program as well. Waukesha Catholic educates over 575 students in grades K3 through 8 at our three campuses. St. William Campus serves as our Early Childhood Campus with grades K3, K4, and K5. St. Mary Campus serves as our Primary Education Campus with grades 1-5, and St. Joseph Campus houses grades 6-8.
Exemplary RecognitionIn October 2012, Waukesha Catholic was awarded Exemplary Status in the area of Innovative Programs by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee for our Café Create Fine Arts program. Café Create, a student-directed program, promotes the Fine Art programs, getting students, parents, and alumni involved for a night of poetry, singing, dancing, music, and much more, all created solely by students based on their curriculum. At a time when many schools are struggling to support the fine arts, Waukesha Catholic has found a way to embrace, promote, and grow our Fine Arts programs.
