Our Story

Our History
Waukesha 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 Present
Today, 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 450 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 Recognition
In 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.
