Building a Foundation for Faith, Family, and Academics since 1963.
Welcome to Saint Zachary Catholic School!
Welcome to Saint Zachary Catholic School. For over 55 years, our school has provided a quality Catholic education for Pre-School through Eighth Grade students. As a result, our students consistently score well above average on national achievement tests while developing confidence, respect, and leadership skills. Saint Zachary School is committed to working with parents and guardians to develop children who are enriched academically, socially, and spiritually, becoming good Christians with a lifelong passion for learning. Please contact us for a tour to experience our dedication as we work towards Building a Foundation for Faith, Family, and Academics.
St. Zachary School serves students beginning with 3 and 4 year old Pre-school through 8th grade. We currently offer 3 and 4 year old combined Half Day Morning or Afternoon Pre-school, Full Day 3 year old Pre-kindergarten, and Full Day 4 year old Pre-kindergarten. Please contact us to arrange a tour!
All are welcome to experience the joy of the Living Nativity on Sunday, December 15th from 4pm to 8:30pm on the North lawn. Join us as we re-enact the story of the birth of Jesus. There will be live animals, a petting zoo, hot chocolate, coffee, and more! Admission is free.
You can make a difference by volunteering! We are always in need of volunteers to help make our family and fundraising events successful. Please review the volunteer requirements set forth by the Archdiocese of Chicago for the Protection of Children and Youth. Remember to record your volunteer hours. Thank you for continued support of St. Zachary School!
Please visit the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic Schools website for current information regarding how the educational funding bill may benefit current and prospective St. Zachary School families.
A Catholic school education is an investment in the future. We realize that resources can be limited, which is why St. Zachary School offers tuition scholarships to help make it affordable and accessible for those who wish to attend. Please consider a contribution to our tuition assistance program through GiveCentral.
Did you know…St. Zachary students are on track for college and long term academic excellence based on ACT Aspire test scores. Our students find strength in their Catholic faith which we incorporate into each day’s activities. Our goal is to build a lifelong passion for learning in our students where they excel academically, foster their individuality, display creativity, and are prepared for the next step in their education.
