Literacy Centers

Through its Literacy Centers, Stritch aims to provide access to functional, lifetime literacy for students in Milwaukee, regardless of cultural, economic, linguistic, or biological factors.

The Literacy Centers offer comprehensive literacy assessment and intervention services for students in grades K-12.

We have helped students succeed since 1943, through applying research-based strategies tailored to their strengths, needs, and ongoing progress.

All curriculum is based on basic literacy instruction and engaged motivation, through inspiring self-confidence and success as a reader.
