A place so near can take you so far.
Welcome to Old St. Mary’s School! We are a vibrant and growing Catholic school in the South Loop of Chicago serving over 300 children in preschool through 8th grade. As we continue to grow, adding a grade level each year, we look forward to becoming one of the premier elementary schools in our city, serving students all the way up through the eighth grade. We offer a rigorous academic program, rooted in a firm foundation of our Christian faith, preparing our students for the challenges of the twenty-first century and beyond. Our students enjoy a curriculum designed with many hands-on learning opportunities. Our location, just minutes away from the Museum Campus, allows us frequent access to the rich history and treasures of our great city.
