Welcome to Admissions

  • Thank you for your interest in St. Therese Chinese Catholic School!

    We expanded to a second campus beginning in the 2019-2020 school year. Our second campus, St. Barbara Campus (located at 2859 South Throop Street in the Bridgeport neighborhood), is a gorgeous, light-filled building that allows St. Therese to expand its enrollment. 

    We currently have enrollment opportunities in ALL PreKindergarten through 8th grade classrooms. St. Barbara Campus will follow the same curriculum and programs that helped St. Therese win its second National Blue Ribbon Award in 2018.    

    Please contact our Admissions Office at any time - (312) 326-2837 or admissions@sttheresechicago.org to learn more and to inquire about registering. We are open year-round.  

    SPECIAL NOTE: With the addition of St. Barbara Campus and the opportunity to open up enrollment opportunities, we are re-visiting our admissions policies. Please do not hesitate to reach out to our Admissions Office.

    Please also refer to the Application and Registration Checklist, which will help you navigate the process.  

    The admission process begins when a prospective family first contacts our Admissions Office by email to request an Online Application Form.  The school will formally acknowledge receipt of the application and confirm the remaining steps in the process based on age of child(ren) and time of year.  

    All students who complete the entire application process are considered for enrollment. However, due to the number of applications that we receive, we cannot guarantee enrollment to all who apply. 

    Please refer to our Admissions Policy for more information about our admissions policies and practices.

    IMPORTANT: We require prospective parents to visit St. Therese at least twice. The first visit should be an Open House. Please contact our Admissions Office by email or by calling 312-326-2837 to schedule a visit during one of the school’s scheduled Open House events; all Open House dates may also be found on the School Calendar.

    Initial visits during the Open House provide the opportunity for parents to gain insight into the school’s curriculum and programs. A full school tour including classroom instruction observation will be provided during the tour. 

    Please schedule a second visit with your child after the Open House. This visit will include a visit to a classroom, a meeting with the Registrar, and a meeting with the Principal.
