Siena Catholic Schools hosting open houses next week

RACINE — The educational journey from kindergarten to high school impacts your child’s future. The path to success can be faith-filled, safe and affordable. Siena Catholic Schools of Racine will partner with your family on this journey to help make it a reality.


If you don’t think that you can afford Catholic education, think again.

Affordability is often the first concern a family has when considering options for school. At Siena, there are a number of options to lessen the financial impact. Financial aid is available to those who qualify, including scholarships and parish assistance. Families with multiple children receive a 50% reduced rate, as do Siena employees. The average scholarship award is $1,000. Some are as much as $3,000, and several scholarships are renewable.

The Siena Promise Scholarship is available to students in good standing who have attended a Siena Catholic school or participated in a Siena religious education program for at least three years. This $2,500 scholarship is renewable for all four years of high school, meaning it could total $10,000.

While each school offers a unique experience, they are guided by a shared mission: to inspire students to be who God created them to be.

We believe that when you give students the right foundation, they are able to grow. While our stats measure up to some of the best in the state and the country, we also value the heights our students reach on a personal, spiritual and communal level. When students are rooted in faith and tradition, they’re able to grow in mind, body and faith. That’s what we call faith-forward education.

We are committed to providing an exceptional college and life-preparatory Catholic education to students regardless of a family’s circumstances. Let’s brighten and pave your child’s path to success.
