About Us

Mission Statement: "St. Mary of the Lake and St. Thomas of Canterbury Schools embrace children from around the world, offering them an outstanding education in the tradition of the Roman Catholic Church. Our mission is to prepare our graduates for higher education, thus empowering them to become leaders in the Church and secular society."

We are proud of the fact that despite often overwhelming odds our eighth graders go on to attend some of the most prestigious high schools in Chicago. Many students have passed through these doors on their way to future academic success, and we consider their victories our own. We welcome you to share our success!
