  • Call the Office of Enrollment Management at 414.540.3320 or email admissions@usmk12.org.
  • Applicants will be assigned a student guide and spend the day with their peers for an opportunity to experience the academic and social environment.

Step 3: Schedule your child's admissions test (for grades 2 and above only).
  • Call the Office of Enrollment Management at 414.540.3320 or email admissions@usmk12.org to schedule your child's admissions test.

Step 4: Notification of admission and enrollment decision.
