When we moved into the Oak Lawn area we were looking for a school with a strong commitment to diversity, that was in alignment with our catholic faith & values, had low teacher to student ratio, great academics & sports & offered bilingual (Spanish) classes. To our great delight, St. Germaine met all of these criteria and even exceeded our expectations. Both our son (4th) and daughter (K) love this school, its teachers and classmates. They are always eager to go to school every day, and we can attest that their experience there is as if they have an extended family! - Not only they have great academics (they are a Blue Ribbon school), but the teachers go above and beyond. During the pandemic, the school is offering families the option for full time @ school or remote, with teachers providing a detailed weekly plan for students to work on and either doing videos for those at home and/or doing follow up video conference calls with kids to monitor progress. We truly recommend St. Germaine!!

Enrolled my son in Pre-K last year and happily returning for the 2018-2019 school year. The care and commitment his teachers have not only to his academics, but socialization (so important for my "only") are well worth the investment. His teacher kept him engaged, motivated, and eager to go to school each and every day. Integrated lesson plans that incorporate a multi-tired approach to learning have my kiddo talking non stop when I pick him up from school about everything he has learned.There are also so many ways to get involved as a student, parent and family. I do believe we are part of the "Family of St Germaine" who not only pride themselves as top-notch (they have won the Blue Ribbon Award for excellence) in education but social responsibility, which is incredibly important to me.St Germaine also offers a "pay as you go" style extended day program for working parents! Nice because sometimes I can get him early and I don't have to commit to a certain time

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.
