Life in the Fox Cities
The District is located in Appleton, a community of 70,000, located approximately 100 miles north of Milwaukee and 30 miles south of Green Bay.
It is a safe community offering many opportunities for participation in the arts and sports, as well as further study. Appleton International Airport and the Fox River Mall are just outside of Appleton. Many churches, organizations, and neighborhood parks help to make this a very nice area in which to live, work, and raise a family.
