The school’s principal, teachers, alumni, parents and students will be on hand to welcome all prospective students and parents, offer tours and serve complimentary refreshments.
"St. Joseph School, with its smaller class sizes and strong track record of academic success, is something we are very proud of," stated Principal Lawrence Manetti. "Our school gives children an advantage that lasts a lifetime---a firm foundation that prepares boys and girls for the rigors of high school and beyond."
Information packets about the 2013-14 school year will be available, and preliminary registrations will be accepted.
St. Joseph School offers a Christ-centered education for boys and girls in kindergarten through eighth grade, as well as three- and four-year-old preschool.Before- and after-school care are offered to accommodate the needs of working parents.
Children at the school have access to a wide variety of extra-curricular activities, including basketball, volleyball, baseball, softball, band, choir, chess club, Girl Scouts and more.
The school serves children and parents in St. Joseph Parish (which includes the northern section of Summit and the western section of Chicago’s Garfield Ridge neighborhood), and also welcomes children from a number of other areas, including suburban Bedford Park, Bridgeview, Justice, Willow Springs, Lyons and other communities.
