Welcome to St. Joan's!

Ranked the Top 15 Best Catholic Schools in Wisconsin

We are driven by a calling to serve young women seeking a spiritually enriching, supportive, and challenging educational experience that helps them find their voice and become leaders. It is our job to make sure that our students are well-prepared for a successful future that strengthens their relationship with their local and global communities. Since 1954 we have built a legacy of women that positively impact their communities and strive for academic and career success. With small class sizes and a focus on empowering young women to find their strengths our students build career-focused skills and positive relationships that last a lifetime.

We know our young women can change the world.
