The Green Bay Area Catholic Education (GRACE) system is the largest Catholic school system in Wisconsin. A collaborative school ministry of the 23 Green Bay area Catholic parishes, GRACE was formed in 2008 to provide affordable, high quality Catholic early childhood, elementary and middle-school education. It serves 2728 students at ten neighborhood school sites located throughout the Green Bay area. Over 125 students of other faith denominations attend the GRACE schools. The GRACE system employs over 250 people with a total annual community investment of $10.5 million. The system has just completed a three-year planning and consolidation process that involved the 23 faith communities, parents and staff. It will assume full school operations on July 1, 2011.
