Dear Prospective Families,
I thank you for your interest in our school and welcome you to learn more about us. We believe that Capitol West Academy is a pretty special place for a number of reasons.
Not only do we stress academic rigor, but also character development. All our students know our core values and pledge daily to embrace respect, responsibility, honesty and achievement. We have received national and state recognition for our emphasis on character.
We strongly believe that parents must be active partners in their children’s education, and we welcome input and participation. In fact, we employ a daily communication system with parents called the passport, so that they always know how their children are doing and what is expected of them. And we receive high marks in a parent satisfaction survey that we conduct twice each year.
We have forged strong partnerships with outside entities to help ensure student success, including a summer learning program with education students from Cardinal Stritch University and tutoring in reading from the Elmbrook Rotary. And many dedicated volunteers from CWA families get involved and help out regularly.
We work with children and parents to understand each child’s strengths and challenges and within state standards tailor teaching to meet individual needs and boost performance. We embrace the notion that rigorous academics and character development inspire lifelong learning. Our ultimate goal is to ensure that our students are prepared academically and socially to enter high school, college and careers with a vision of success.
Please feel free to contact me to learn more about Capitol West Academy. I invite you to become part of our extended family.
