Parents and Students

Generations of families from many different backgrounds and faiths entrust their children’s education to Chicago’s many wonderful Catholic schools.

So why should your family do the same?

Big Shoulders Fund schools are safe and family-oriented. We offer extended day programs before and after school for working families, and our schools succeed in helping students achieve their maximum academic potential. You are welcome to come and visit any of the schools we support to see first-hand the culture of success that our students and their families experience every day.

If you are interested in sending your child to one of our schools, you can also apply for one of our many scholarships. Please contact the principal of your local Big Shoulders Fund school to discuss your scholarship eligibility and the application process, or click here to learn more.
