Registration and Enrollment

Registration and enrollment information for programs offered by the Literacy Centers.


New students are tested before instruction begins. To initiate testing, you will need to complete the following:

Confidential, Objective Evaluation

Before instruction begins, we assess a child's reading ability, strengths, and needs. If we find that he or she has needs other than reading, we will provide a referral to another resource and serve as an advocate for the child if desired.


Enrollment forms are available online, by calling (414) 410-4421 or (414) 410-4380, or in person at:

City Center
1037 W McKinley Ave
Box 223
Milwaukee, WI 53205
Main Campus
6801 N Yates Road
Box 104
Milwaukee, WI 53217

These forms should be completed and returned to Cardinal Stritch University, 6801 N Yates Road, Box 104, Milwaukee, WI 53217. Fourteen sessions are held once a week, either after school or on Saturday mornings for the fall and spring semesters. Summer classes meet twice a week for six weeks from mid-June through July. Classes are 90 minutes in length.

Instruction Based on Continuous Assessment

After the initial evaluation, we design an intervention plan to meet each students situation. Our master instructors and graduate students (experienced teachers completing Wisconsin Certification in reading teaching) carry out that plan in individual sessions. Progress is continually evaluated. We do not hesitate to modify a lesson if a student’s progress indicates the need.


  • Spring session—Mid-January to mid-May
  • Fall session—September to mid-December
  • Summer session—Mid-June to end of July
