Huge fan of SJB. The teachers and families are just good people — and I love who my kids are becoming, due in large part to the environment at SJB. They have fun STEAM days nearly every month, STEAM labs/rooms, fantastic art classes, and music. Also, their test scores are head and shoulders above the other private and public schools in Logan Square. But even if they weren't, I really think that there's an inclusive, supportive, growth-mindset atmosphere that somehow makes kids thrive. Every 8th grade class for the 3 years my kids have been there has gone on to selective enrollment (Lane, Jones, Whitney Young), DePaul, Ignatius Loyola, Trinity (River Forest), etc. I looked around at MANY schools and am glad we went with SJB!

I absolutely adore St John Berchmans school! Sending our children to this neighborhood school was the best decision we could have made for their academic success. The school's test scores soar above and beyond ANY CPS or private school in Logan Square. The teachers are dedicated and committed to the students. The parent community is involved with lots of fun events and volunteer opportunities. My child started at St John Berchmans school in 3 year old preschool. She graduated and got accepted into several select enrollment and private schools. She had so many options! SJB fully prepared my child to be competitive and ready to succeed in high school. I would 100% recommend St John Berchmans over any school, public or private, in Logan Square. They are simply the BEST school in terms of academics, test scores, social-emotional learning and parent community. A+

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.
