In our first year, FIRE Foundation of Greater Chicago is working with several schools in our area to support their inclusive education learning environment. We look forward to welcoming additional schools into the FIRE family soon.
St. James School
Saint James School is dedicated to partnering with parents in modeling Christ for our children. They strive to provide a foundation from which students recognize and develop
their personal relationship with God
an academic culture of meaningful and lifelong learning
beliefs, morals, and practices driven by Gospel values
We are called to walk in faith, live in hope, and act in love.
At St. John the Evangelist they are blessed to have the most dedicated, faith-filled faculty and the most spiritually and intellectually challenging curriculum for your children. In addition to high academic standards, they also strive to teach your children the importance of play, prayer, and serving others by participating in extracurricular activities, school masses and prayer services, and school service projects. By doing all of this, St. John the Evangelist joyously plays, prays and serves together in a very vibrant Catholic Christian environment.
Saint Juliana School has faithfully served Catholic families in the Edison Park, Niles and Park Ridge communities since 1928. Excellent academic achievement, spiritual development, and service to others characterize Saint Juliana School students. Extracurricular programs in athletics, fine arts, and scouting provide students with additional opportunities for growth and exploration. A ministry of Saint Juliana Parish, the school welcomes children of all faiths, from preschool (starting at age three) through eighth grade.
Educating children in the Lakeview neighborhood of Chicago since 1888, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Academy offers top-tier academics in a nurturing Catholic environment. The curriculum and student life at OLMCA emphasize the holistic development and growth of each student. Our preschool through eighth-grade student population is ethnically, economically, and culturally diverse. Students grow together in a community large enough to offer an abundance of academic and enrichment options, yet small enough that every child receives individual attention and support.
