ACADEMICS

DSC03074As a school community based on the Gospel message, our teaching efforts and concerns focus on the spiritual, moral and intellectual growth as well as the welfare of each student. We consider it our responsibility to assist parents in developing the whole child for Christian living.

Students are unique individuals. We promote an atmosphere conducive to inspiring the students to recognize and attain their goals through the development of their God given talents and abilities. We also promote an atmosphere in which the students respect the talents and abilities of others.

We strongly urge parental and community cooperation and support in our spiritual and educational endeavors.

Each year the students in 3rd and 5th grade take the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. Consistently, HCS students score well above the national average. Annually, students in 4th grade take the Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Exam. Over 97% of the students consistently score in the Proficient and Advanced Levels on this test.

Religion is the subject that sets HCS apart, which is central to our school and sets the tone for all we do.

The curriculum in all subject areas is aligned to the state, national and Milwaukee archdiocesan standards that benchmark what students should know and be able to do to prepare them for the rest of their academic life, professional life and beyond. HCS is accredited by the Archdiocese of Milwaukee and the Wisconsin Council of Religious and Independent Schools.

 

Parent Testimonials

Wilkum Family One of the things I appreciate most about HCS is how the kids interact with one another as if it is the most natural thing in the world. Thank you for being great role models for the kids and for encouraging them to be great role models for the younger kids. I know Gregory is a better person because of his interaction with the 'big' kids. It really does make HCS a great place.

Wagner Family We send our children to CPES for many reasons. Small class sizes allow the dedicated teachers at CPES to focus on individual student needs. Academic rigor and Catholic values are a given. Most important to me is the emphasis placed on respect and kindness each day at CPES.

Ditter Family We send our kids to CPES to build strong values in them. The smaller classes allow plenty of opportunities for us as parents to be involved in the school.



Student Testimonials

Owen Jacobs
I like CPES because you get super smart!

Adam Lisowe - past student
As a sophomore I feel I am a lot farther in my classes than students that came from the public school. I was taught very early in my education that I needed to be responsible for getting my work organized and done. I was taught very good study habits that have followed me through my current high school years. Thanks to CPES I am on track to completing several college credits in high school which will help me financially and academically in college. CPES also taught me to be a leader and volunteer in our community, which will help me in years to come when applying for scholarships. CPES laid down a solid foundation for me to build the rest of my education on. I am grateful to my parents for making the decision to send me to CPES because it made a huge difference in my schooling and my life.

I like CPES because I learn about Jesus and all the good things he did.

Mackenzie Ditter
I like it because we get to go to church every week and the teachers are really nice.
