CMH to join WI Parental Choice Program

July 15, 2013

Dear CMH Community Member:                                                         
Catholic Memorial High School is excited to announce that, by a unanimous recommendation of the CMH Board of Directors, we intend to participate in the recently expanded Wisconsin Parental Choice Program. Through this program, we have the opportunity to provide our premier education to students who otherwise could not afford to attend CMH.  We are confident that we can do this while in no way compromising our Catholic mission to serve and our present levels of success. 

This is an important decision, and as with all decisions, we thoroughly reviewed every detail of the program. As a part of our research, our staff spent hours interviewing leaders from those schools that have successfully participated in other Choice programs. Additionally, CMH staff will continue to be trained on how best to implement this process to ensure a smooth transition for our current students, new students, faculty and staff. We are entering this program intentionally but gradually, so we are able to guarantee its success for both the students and for CMH.

Our participation will initially include a limited number of seats divided between the freshmen and sophomore classes, and students could begin attending as soon as this coming school year (2013-2014). We believe that enrolling students in CMH as underclassmen best positions them to assimilate into the CMH culture and to learn “The Memorial Way.”  Together, this enhances the plan for success at the junior and senior levels, ultimately leading the choices for post-secondary education.

It should be noted that even before the Wisconsin Parental Choice Program, CMH has offered a variety of targeted tuition discounts as well as extensive, need-based tuition assistance. Ideally, this program will allow us to maintain our diverse community population, while allowing for a broader dedication of some valuable resources for academic programming.

Our Catholic mission to serve is a calling that our faculty and staff, along with students and families, live every day.  We are proud that our participation in this program might allow us to continue this profound mission in yet another way.

Sincerely yours in Christ,

Very Reverend Paul B. R. Hartmann, '84

We’re looking for a good carpenter!

CMH is presently blessed with two good challenges. 

First, a recent donation of a dozen relics of Catholic saints needs a proper place of display in the Our Lady of the Rosary Chapel.  It is hoped that these, along with a number of reliquaries that the school already cares for can be displayed in a secure, shadow box style display case.

Second, With last year’s great sports successes, CMH has run out of space for all of the State Championship and State Runner-Up trophies.  The best plan is to rebuild one or two of the cases in the first floor Champions Hallway.

If there is a good carpenter willing to donate their services for one, or both, of these projects, please contact Fr. Paul Hartmann  (
