High School Students

Begin Your Mission at Stritch

Through education, academic support, mentoring, and career opportunities, we help students find their mission in life. Our more than 34,000 graduates are known for their roles in nonprofits, schools, small companies, health care organizations, corporations, and entrepreneurial ventures. 

Cardinal Stritch University is rooted in the liberal arts tradition, transforming lives and communities through servant leadership, learning, and service. Students with diverse faith and cultural backgrounds are invited to embrace and live our core Catholic and Franciscan values of creating a caring community, showing compassion, reverencing creation, and making peace, as we embrace and cultivate the diversity of all of God's creation.

In college, you define yourself as an individual and as a member of the communities in which you serve. The people you meet at Stritch are here to help you succeed and help you feel right at home. We're currently accepting applications. For more information, contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions at (414) 410-4040 or (800) 347-8822, ext. 4040, or apply online now!
