Mount Calvary teachers have a wide range of gifts and passions and provide a fun and inspiring learning environment. With a low student to teacher ratio, Mount Calvary is big enough to fill our student's needs but small enough to provide lots of one-on-one attention. And with Christ at the center of everything we teach, we are thankful that God has blessed our students and school with excellence in academics. 

  • Curriculum to prepare students for high school, college, and beyond

  • Student to teacher ratio 16:1 (not including teacher aides)

  • Students perform well above national average

  • Fun projects to inspire our students (Cinco de Mayo celebrations, biographies of famous Wisconsinites, rain forest presentations, Readers' Cafe, Irish Fest, etc.)
