About Catholic Schools

Catholic education is a leading priority in the Archdiocese of Chicago. Our Catholic schools form children in their faith, provide rigorous academic instruction, and produce compassionate and engaged citizens in society. What sets the Archdiocese of Chicago Catholic School system apart from other large school systems is its success in delivering academic excellence fueled by faith.

Our schools prepare more than 40,000 students for high school, college and careers while enabling them to know, love and serve Christ. We believe that Catholic schools are crucial to revitalizing our Church.

We invite you to support our mission of providing an excellent faith-based academic experience to any family who wishes to pursue a Catholic education within the Archdiocese of Chicago.
