St. Nicholas Cathedral School stresses academic excellence, including the importance of high school readiness. The school uses a strategic approach to prepare our students to gain entry to and thrive at college preparatory high schools across the city. In addition, 40% of this year’s graduating class are proud Daniel Murphy Scholarship recipients.
The high school readiness program at SNCS includes a thorough and meaningful curriculum that addresses today’s competitive needs of students. Students are taught rigorous content area courses, in addition to skills that will help them flourish outside of the classroom. SNCS faculty regularly met with students and their parents throughout this process to help identify the school that is the best fit for the student and to help guide our families through the application process based on individual needs and academic goals.
These elements combined help students to value their education, resulting in well-prepared and intelligent young adults who are prepared to attend Chicago’s best public and private high schools.Please join our community in congratulating our Eighth graders on their accomplishments. They are a true testament to the level of excellent education provided by our outstanding faculty.
