St. Procopius School is located in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, a community of Mexican and Mexican-American families.
St. Procopius provides a dual-language education for a variety of students of both Hispanic and American backgrounds.
Not only do they learn in both English and Spanish, they also learn about and celebrate the rich cultural heritage of both Mexico and America.
Our teachers provide a warm and caring environment for our students, challenging and encouraging them to be creative, energetic, and hard-working in their schoolwork and in their lives.
We provide a dual-language education.
This means that from Pre-Kindergarten through eighth grade our students are learning in both English and Spanish with the goal of becoming fully bilingual in both by graduation.
We have students that come into the school with limited English or limited Spanish, and all students are exposed to academic vocabulary in all subjects and in both languages.
Our students are also exposed to other faiths other than Catholic.
Some members of our staff and student body are not Catholic, and they share their spiritual gifts in other ways.
Religion classes focus not only on Catholic teachings but connecting Catholicism with Christianity and other major world religions.
