Core Values

Academic Excellence

Academic rigor is a hallmark of a Catholic education. For centuries, Catholic schools have been distinguished for providing a truly excellent environment that prepares children for college and life ahead.

By any measure, our schools deliver a top-notch education. Students in our Catholic schools achieve higher than national average scores on standardized tests like the ACT and ACT Aspire. Our seniors graduate at a rate of 98 percent and of those who graduate, 95 percent go on to college. It’s no wonder the Archdiocese of Chicago has more U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Award schools than any other school system – public or private – in the nation.

We realize test scores and awards are important measures of performance, but they can only tell part of the story. Each child is unique, and Catholic schools help unlock the distinct interest and talents of each child. Catholic schools teach children about the deeper underlying themes of society, and equip them with the ability to know how their knowledge can better the world around them.

We pride ourselves on providing a well-rounded education. We develop the whole child, offering an enriching curriculum that includes the arts, humanities and physical education. Our classrooms frequently offer the latest in instructional technology.
