Amazing school! We moved to Evanston for the public school system, but feel in love with PJ23 and could not leave after preschool. The community, teachers, small class sizes and academics are what kept us here. We are excited for our second child to attend!

We love this school! We have been a part of this community for 10+ years and our oldest is thriving in high school. He was well prepared and found the transition into high school a breeze. The teachers are top notch and the community is warm, welcoming, and diverse.

The best decision we ever made was to send our 4 kids to Pope John XXIII School. We transferred from another local catholic school and at the time of the transfer, our kids were so behind in what they should have been. The amazing teachers got our kids where they should have been and more...when our now junior in high school graduates from PJ23, she placed in ALL AP courses and tested into Latin 3 at a CPs school! Our remaining here kids are thriving and excelling! The school community couldn`t be any more welcoming and inclusive. I cannot stress enough how lucky we are to have come to PJ23.

Fantastic environment! Supports a variety of interests and assists the needs of varied learning styles with ease. The school respects the children and the families. The homework is substantive and the projects in school are rich in content.

Sending your child to a single-sex school is one of several options you have when it comes to private schools.
Each state sets its own teacher certification requirements. While many private schools do not require you to be certified, it is in your best interests to obtain certification. This article includes contact information for state education offices so you can begin the process.
Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
