One City Schools' mission is to prepare young children for success in school and life and ensure they are on track to succeed in a college and career preparatory program in high school.


One City Schools, Inc. is a nonprofit, tax-exempt 501(c)(3) organization that operates high quality independent and public preschools and grade schools in Wisconsin dedicated to this purpose. They are committed to cultivating healthy, happy, thoughtful, and resourceful children who have the capacity, passion and commitment to thrive personally, empower others and change the world for the better.


One City provides affordable, accessible, and high-quality preschools and grade schools that prepare young children for school success. They also embrace the village concept – that it truly takes an entire village to raise a child.


A Greater Madison community where all children are prepared to contribute and succeed as adults.

One City Schools was awarded a gift of $81,000 from 100 Men of Dan County to help support the operations of their school as they grow to enroll children in first grade next year.
