2014-15 school year at St. Joseph School, 5641 South 73rd Avenue, Summit--just a half-block southwest of the Portillo's at 56th and Harlem.
Pre-schoolers through eighth graders, and their moms and dads and even a
few grandmas and grandpas, stopped by the school's Centennial Hall on Friday evening---renewing old friendships and making new ones.
For about a century, St. Joseph School has provided a Catholic elementary school education to boys and girls in Summit, Chicago's Garfield Ridge neighborhood, and many other fine city
neighborhoods and suburban towns--making the student body a unique and friendly mix of city and suburban.
Its smaller-by-design class size means greater attention from teachers, and the school boasts that its students, almost without exception, attend the high schools of their choice,
including such top school as St. Ignatius College Prep, Trinity High School, St. Laurence High School, Queen of Peace High School, Marist High School, St. Rita High School and more.
St. Joe's graduates have excelled at some of the nation's top universities, including Harvard, the
University of Chicago and more.
The school offers a range of sports, clubs and other extra-curricular activities.
Before- and after-school care is available, as is tuition assistance.
New students and transfer students are still being accepted.
For information and a tour of the school, call Principal Lawrence Manetti at (708) 458-2927.
