St. Bede Academy has been providing quality Catholic education in North Central Illinois for over 116 years.
While we pride ourselves in our rich history and tradition, we understand the ever-changing needs of students today.
Our goal is to provide students with an education that will not only develop their minds, but also strengthen their character preparing them for life's challenges.
The academic environment at St. Bede encourages students to excel, both in and outside of the classroom.
We commit to having graduates leave the Academy ready, both spiritually and academically, for life in the real world.
