Parents of younger children may be able to pay for a portion of their childcare expenses through the Wisconsin Works (W-2) program. Contact our office, at or 414-645-5337, ext. 267 to learn more.

We also offer assistance through our Sr. Agnessine Scholarship Fund. Sr. Agnessine came to St. Joseph’s Home for Orphans as a young child in 1920, and joined the Felician Sisters in 1936. Sr. Agnessine served as a teacher and director at St. Joseph and exemplified the Sisters’ compassionate care for Milwaukee’s children.

These scholarships make it possible for many of our single-parent and low-income families to attend the St. Joseph Academy and we are honored to provide them in Sr. Agnessine’s memory.
