We are a Catholic, coeducational, dual-language college preparatory school located in the Pilsen neighborhood of Chicago.
The school’s purpose is to advance the human and intellectual capacities, as well as the religious and cultural heritage, of the immigrant families of Chicago’s near Southwest side.
Founded in 1996, we pioneered the Corporate Work Study Program model for inner-city education that has inspired a national network of 25 schools serving low-income communities throughout the country.
