St. Symphorosa is a great school for my children. It is a warm welcoming place where students are challenged academically and provided with life skills and values. It is a diverse community that cares for the students and environment!

I could not be more pleased with St. Symphorosa. The staff truly cares about each and every child at the school. My son is in Pre-K and I am thrilled that he gets Math, Science, Reading, and Religion every day, plus computers, art, P.E., Spanish, and Music every week. The school truly feels like a community and you are family once you are there. I highly recommend St. Symphorosa!

I would not only recommend this school I would like to challenge anyone that wouldn't a personal invitation to visit our school. Please call the main office at 773-585-6888 and ask to set up a tour. Anyone of our staff or volunteers would be more than willing to take you on a personal tour at the time of your choosing. The school is amongst a great deal of welcoming change and we invite you to experience that change with us.
