Holy Apostles School is a Catholic K4 - 8 elementary school serving the community of and around New Berlin, Wisconsin since 1893.
The mission of Holy Apostles School is to advance the educational ministry of the Catholic Church by creating a compassionate atmosphere which will promote faith, knowledge, and service.
We believe that each child who comes to us is a unique individual created by God, endowed with potential capabilities to grow and mature and become a responsible, loving, trusting adult.
We believe it our responsibility, in cooperation with the parents of these boys and girls, to provide a loving and trusting environment for them in which they can begin to recognize their potential for discovering and creating.
Holy Apostles School, as a Catholic institution, exists in order that a pleasant, friendly atmosphere may be created for the boys and girls who come to us, so that they may learn to live in the present with an ever increasing awareness of who they are in relation to God and to others through Christian attitudes, concepts and the lessons we teach them.

From basic math facts and phonics instruction; to web-based lessons; and the fine arts our school addresses the needs of the child. Our school proudly carries on the tradition of faith-filled education originally taught by the Seminary Sisters from St. Francis. Our students excel in high school with our students scoring higher than average grades. Check out our school and see how we offer an education of Faith, Knowledge, and Compassion.
