Tel: (847)468-6100
Grades: PK - 8 | 214 students
St. Laurence School is dedicated to students.
The administration, faculty, curriculum, and programs are all focused on stimulating each student's full potential.
We believe that teaching the truths of our Catholic faith, as well as instilling Christian values, are primary in the education of our children.
Parents are the primary educators of their children, with the school assisting the parents in their role as educators.
Each child must experience this sense of self-worth as a reality in their relationship with their peers, teachers and parents.
In a rapidly changing world, we believe children need guidance, direction, and a capacity to "learn how-to-learn", in order to cope with the complexities of modern life.
