As 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 Rosary is prayed, as a school, each October and May.  Weekly attendance at Mass is part of the curriculum and each Advent and Lent, we hold special, seasonal activities.

 

Catholic Social Teaching: The students are involved in many activities that promote the guidelines of the National Catholic Bishops Association. Some of these activities include visiting the area ‘Shut-ins’ with cookie treats ad short visits, collections of personal hygiene items for the poor, annual food drive, warm items collection, ‘pennies for the needy’.

 

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.
