  • Current tuition rates can be found on the Tuition and Scholarship page. We offer parishioner and multi-child tuition rates for kindergarten-8th grade.

Applications are available online; the deadline is May 1. If you want to learn more about the Guardian Angel Scholarship Fund, please contact Melissa Soberanes at 773-743-6277 ext. 207.
