cotter schools: the next chapter

Catholic education in Winona is evolving, and the future has never been brighter. Starting July 1, 2021, Cotter Schools is expanding to offer educational opportunities for ages 16 months through Grade 12.

This next chapter in this history of Cotter Schools advances a mission that began more than 110 years ago. From our beginnings in the early 1900s with just 11 graduates to the present, Cotter High School and Junior High have maintained the highest academic standards while imparting Catholic faith and values to generations of local and international students.

Our mission is to challenge students to achieve their full potential and use their lives in service of others. God has richly blessed us. May we live with grateful hearts. We have an exciting future together.
