Academic rigor is a hallmark of Catholic education. For generations, Catholic schools have been distinguished for providing a truly excellent environment that prepares children for high school, 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. 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 Catholic schools have more U.S. Department of Education Blue Ribbon Awards 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 interests 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 also pride ourselves on providing a well-rounded education. We offer an enriching curriculum that includes not only math and language arts, but science, humanities, religion, the arts and physical education. Our classrooms frequently offer the latest in instructional technology.
