About Catholic Schools

Catholic education has long been a priority in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Our 217 schools prepare more than 77,000 students for college and future careers, as well as enable them to know, love and serve Christ. Catholic schools are key to revitalizing our Church.

Catholic schools are a major resource for nurturing faith and fostering Christian values in the lives of our children and young people. In addition to being the best in academic training, we offer invaluable religious formation and character development. Our schools provide opportunities for our young people to reach their fullest potential as responsible members of society and faithful members of the Body of Christ.
