Since the beginning of the war in Ukraine, St. Nicholas Cathedral School has welcomed over 80 Ukrainian refugee children to our school. These children have come to the United States with few belongings and limited to no knowledge of the English language. Our mission is to help each child feel safe and provide a stable learning environment while helping them master a new language and adapt to a new environment.
Here are a few articles sharing stories about our refugee efforts:
- The Washington Post https://www.washingtonpost.com/nation/2022/10/07/chicago-school-embraces-ukrainian-students-fleeing-war/
- Block Club Chicago https://blockclubchicago.org/2022/08/25/how-a-ukrainian-village-catholic-school-is-making-families-escaping-russian-invasion-feel-at-home-in-chicago/
Donations will be applied towards tuition, summer literacy camp, necessities, school supplies, and any other support or goods the refugee children need.
