Here’s How We’re Expanding Access to Excellent Graduate Programs

Silver Lake College of the Holy Family is expanding and offering its graduate programs in the Wausau, Wisconsin area beginning in July 2019. Because our graduate programs are built on a cohort model that allows students to learn in highly interactive and dynamic ways, it is crucial that we expand locations in order to give more people the opportunity to learn alongside a group of their peers.

Although we are expanding, we will maintain our reputable student-teacher ratio so that we can maintain the student-centric focus and quality of relationships with fellow students and the instructors we are known to provide to our students.

The Education cohort will begin July of 2019 and the Leadership and Organizational Development cohort will begin August of 2019. (To guarantee entry, applications should be submitted by May 31 and July 31 for the education and LOD programs, respectively.)
