Founded in 1961, St. Laurence is a Catholic, college preparatory high school conducted by the congregation of Christian Brothers. Rich in academic and athletic tradition, the school is situated on a spacious 23-acre suburban campus and serves young men from Chicago and surrounding suburbs. The complex includes a chapel, five academic wings, four computer labs, science labs, a media center, guidance center with career planning and college placement, a 1,600 seat gymnasium, a fitness center and a two-floor leadership center.

St. Laurence provides a balanced curriculum that is responsive to the needs of our students while offering up-to-date technology, facilities, labs and an environment necessary for learning.

Our success is the direct result of the Christian Brothers, faculty and staff working together.

St. Laurence does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in employment, administration policies, scholarship and loan program, or athletic and other school–administered programs.
