Fr. Mike Dineen

Fr. Mike Dineen passed away Tuesday, May 19, 2020 at the age of 96. Fr. Mike shared his love of God with Christ Child Academy and served as our Development Director from 2005-2013. In addition to assisting at weekend Masses, school Masses and helping with sacraments, he was active in the CCA classrooms and enjoyed being in the hallway at the end of the day to say hello to all the students. Fr. Mike poured his energy into making CCA the best it could be and worked tirelessly to improve the learning and teaching experience for everyone at CCA. We are forever blessed to have had Fr. Mike in our Christ Child Academy family. Services are pending and are being handled by Zimmer Westview Funeral and Cremation Center in Sheboygan.


A memorial fund has been created by the Dineen family for Christ Child Academy.

Safeguarding All God's Family

If parents or grandparents plan to participate in field trips, work in the lunchroom, coach, or help out at school, you must attend a Safeguarding All God’s Family training through the Archdiocese of Milwaukee. You must register on-line at www.archmil.org and indicate you are associated with Christ Child Academy. If you have not previously been trained, now is a great time to attend a session.

Standards Based Grading

During this school year, Christ Child Academy will be transitioning from a traditional grading system to standards based grading system, which will go into effect for the 2020-2021 school year. The Archdiocese of Milwaukee has strongly recommended that all schools move to this reporting framework.


As we proceed through this transition over the next year, please know that our goal of academic excellence remains our priority. These "best practices" will enable parents to fully understand where their child is academically while at the same time motivating students to become life-learners.


The Parenting Guide to Standards Based Grading will provide valuable insight during this transition. Additional information will be coming in the following weeks.
