It's Beginning to Feel A Lot like Christmas

As we anticipate and prepare for Christmas this Advent season, our students have been reaching out to the community, participating in service activities that range from making cards for people served by Meals on Wheels Chicago to collecting toys for families served by Catholic Charities.

Whether you join us for fine arts performances during the upcoming week, Breakfast with Santa tomorrow, our Basketball Jr. Bandit Night, or the Make-Up Entrance Exam for 8th grade girls, know that we offer these activities as part of this busy season and we welcome you to join us!
