See Why Your Child Needs to Attend Our School!

Our friends at the Big Shoulders Fund have produced a video showing how students like ours who attend Catholic schools do better in many different ways than their peers. This is why you need to send your child to our school!

Student uniforms can be purchased at Martinelli’s (708-425-6287). We do maintain a limited supply of gently used school uniforms if necessary. If you have any questions or need any clarification, please contact the school office.

SmartBoards, Promethean Board, Elmos and iPads Added to Classrooms!
Junior high students create an iMovie using an iPad.

In addition to our computer lab equipped with laptops for each student and a new Promethean Activ Board, we have recently purchased SmartBoards, Elmos (document cameras with projectors) and iPads! You can find one of these items in every classroom! This technology makes learning even more interactive and engaging for all students.
