All students at Catholic Memorial embody the values the school strives to teach its students. After attending Catholic Memorial for four years I feel ready to enter into college with a firm grasp on how to live in the ways God teaches and be successful. The teachers have instilled a passion for learning within me and have taught me studying methods I will be able to employ as I go through college. This school has also taught me values such as inclusiveness, professionalism, excellence, faith, memorial, trust, respect, and Caritas in Omnibus. I have especially learned to exemplify Caritas in Omnibus, charity in all things, in everything I do in life.

The first thing that I noticed coming into Catholic Memorial High School (CMH) was the very welcoming community and staff. My older brother and older sister both attended CMH before I did leading me to go there as well. The school is very modernly structured, and is still building new things every year. Coming in as a freshman the school was working on creating the Innovation wing for bigger class sizes and engineering classes as well. During the summer of my sophomore year they built a chapel that is very beautiful and could not have been completed without the help of several donors. They recently just place a plaque outside of the Chapel of the names of people who donated money to help make it. I truly believe that without the great atmosphere and culture of CMH that Chapel would not have gotten as many donors as it did.
The first three years here have been the most amazing experience. I love coming here every day and how good the teachers are at preparing us for college. There are always lots of people here to put a smile on your face every day. The caring nature here as well as the faith connection is so amazing and I am very proud to be a Crusader! Also, the strong emphasis on the fact that this school is a living memorial to the members of the Waukesha community who serve and have served for our country. I am always very proud of what we stand for as a school.
