A Catholic education and children are the central core of the St. Andrew Parish School curriculum. Focusing on facilitating student learning, the faculty utilizes a variety of instructional techniques and strategies. An emphasis is placed on teaching the basic skills needed for life-long learning. Sequential learning, appropriate development practices, innovation, organization, educational research and assessment are strong considerations as the school staff develops the curriculum.
The course of study at St. Andrew Parish School has been developed in accord with the Curriculum committee of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee Office for Schools, and in accord with the requirements of the Department of Public Instruction for the state of Wisconsin. The secular subjects and textbooks are similar to those used in the public sector.
The course of study for all students includes Religion, Communication Arts, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, Health, Art, Music and Physical Education. Technology is integrated throughout all curricular areas, with students using the tools available to them in our Computer Lab.
The education of St. Andrew Parish School children is a community effort of students, parents, faculty, support staff, administration, and parish members. Each member of the community is committed to serving one another in the education of God’s children.
All new families will be matched with a Mentor Family. Mentor families will answer questions you may have throughout the school year and will help you as you become acquainted with our school.
