Thank you for your interest in Christ King School where you’ll find a welcoming community of exceptional education professionals who promote academic excellence in a value-based curriculum that incorporates life-long learning skills.

Located in Wauwatosa, we are a private Catholic parish and tuition-based school with many children enjoying a short walk from their nearby homes. Additionally, there are numerous families from adjoining cities who choose Christ King School for its superior academics, faith formation, and values-based school and parish environment. Christ King Catholic Parish School is part of the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. Although a Catholic school, all students are welcome regardless of race, gender, national origin or creed.

Students, families, faculty, and staff feel a true sense of community here. Families play a significant role in helping children learn and partnering with our school to make it thrive. Numerous, daily opportunities exist to support our school and students – by sharing time, talent, and treasure.

Christ King School has a strong sense of Catholic identity, which is evident in daily prayer, weekly liturgies, and frequent participation in Catholic sacraments. These help strengthen children’s relationship to Jesus. Faith and values-based discussions are part of all classes helping children to look beyond themselves and instill a sense of service to others in school, their homes, their parish, and both the local and global community.

Please spend some time on our website and learn more about our school and the amazing learning opportunities available to every student and family. Then, please come and take a look! In addition to special open house events each year, our doors are open any school day for a personal tour. Call us at (414) 258-4160 to make arrangements or send an EMAIL.

God bless you as you discern the best school for your family!

The School at a Glance ...

 
As part of the spiritual mission of the parish:
  • Tuition costs are subsidized to make up for the gap in educational costs versus the tuition charged. 
  • Families are asked as active parishioners to help close the gap voluntarily through regular participation in parish financial stewardship and parish life through consistent worship at Mass.
  • As a convenience to families, nearly all additional fees are included in the single tuition rate.
  • An installment plan is available, along with tuition assistance.
  • Annual tuition rates and additional details can be found HERE.
 

Christ King Parish School is found in the midst of a vibrant neighborhood surrounded by homes, businesses, and a nearby college campus. We are on the southeast corner of Center Street and Swan Boulevard (92nd Street), where Wauwatosa and Milwaukee meet, providing a convenient location to surrounding communities.

Thanks to generous donations to our recent Capital Campaign, Christ King has made some much-needed improvements to our parish and school campus, providing a safe and welcoming environment for students and families. Improvements include:

Christ King students routinely score well above the national average on the Iowa Test for grades 3rd, 5th and 7th grades, as well as the MAP Test in grades 2-8.

Our latest MAP test showed that students in EVERY grade level exceeded state and national averages in both reading and math. In most cases, students’ scores exceeded Wisconsin’s average by more than 10 points and in some cases, by almost 20 points.

Nearly all students are accepted and go on to attend local area Catholic high schools.

Several of our graduates have gone on to achieve Salutatorian or Valedictorian status at local area schools; many earn prestigious scholarships to college.

Our graduates strive for success in the classroom and build habits of service to the community. In the safe, joyful atmosphere of our beautiful school, students are challenged to be engaged learners and prayerful young people.

 

K3: Beginning with our youngest students, Christ King School instills a sense of calm, joy, and creativity in daily learning experiences within a nurturing and faith-filled atmosphere. The K3 program provides students with a solid Catholic foundation for all future learning through hands-on opportunities and a play-based curriculum.

K3 is offered as a half-day morning program, 8-11 a.m, for two days (Tuesday/Thursday), 3 days (Monday/Wednesday/Friday), or five days (M-F).

Students in K3 must be fully toilet trained before the first day of school. Fully toilet-trained children can do the following:
  • Tell the adult they have to use the bathroom before they have to go
  • Pull down their underwear and pants and get them back up without assistance
  • Wipe themselves after toileting without assistance
  • Get on and off the toilet without assistance (stools are provided if the toilet is too tall)
  • Postpone going if they must wait
  • Wear cloth underwear: no pull-ups or diapers are permitted
  • Use the toilet without a special potty chair


 

K4 & K5: Our K4 and K5 Kindergarten programs build on the foundational instruction of reading and math to help students grow in confidence and prepare for success in future grades. 

  • Students begin to learn personal responsibility and routine, adding discipline and structure to their day.
  • Daily lessons are infused with faith, activity, music, and movement.
  • (Detailed curriculum guides for each grade level may be found through this link to the Archdiocesan website.)

K4 is offered as a full-day (Monday-Friday) program, or as a noon departure (half-day) program for two days (Tuesday/Thursday), three days (Monday/Wednesday/Friday) or five days (Monday-Friday). At any quarterly benchmark, schedules can be adjusted from half days to full days. (Note: Every student pays full tuition regardless of schedule.)

K5 is offered as a full-day (Monday-Friday) program.
