Maternity Bvm School has been providing an outstanding learning and growing experience based on Catholic values in Bourbonnais and the surrounding communities since the 1860's.
We are proud to say that we are a very successful school.
Our students and the adults who work with them as teachers, parent volunteers, coaches and moderators have produced many significant successes.
We are proud that for the last 5 years 88% of our 8th grade students in their first quarter of their freshman year make the honor roll at their respective high schools.
We have had students go on and demonstrate their leadership abilities their freshman year, as they serve as class presidents, club presidents, members of service organizations, youth leaders for church youth groups and even captains on athletic teams.
We at Maternity BVM are convinced that the basic foundation is put in place for our graduates to become life long learners and thus contributing members to our very complex society.
As you explore these pages you will learn about the many parts that comprise this extraordinary scholastic environment.
You will learn about academics, clubs and athletics, and most importantly the faith opportunities demonstrating the Catholic values of our school and our call to be of service to others.
