School Notes:

  • Edgewood High School offers college preparatory education that incorporates the core values of our sponsors, the Dominican Sisters of Sinsinawa (WI): truth, compassion, justice, community and partnership. These values form the framework of our unique identity and mission. Our desire is to enroll students who will flourish in our community. Without losing sight that each student must succeed in our rigorous college preparatory curriculum, we seek a diversity of personal and academic profiles, extra-curricular interests and ethnic and religious backgrounds. Edgewood has a motivating environment where students are challenged in many ways, and supported within a caring Catholic community.
