Thank you for your interest in St. Laurence High School!

Welcome to St. Laurence, the fastest growing Catholic high school in Chicago’s southland. Our diverse student population of nearly 1,000 young men and women come from more than 60 zip codes and 160 grade schools across the Chicagoland area. While we have grown, we still maintain the small school feel so that every student doesn’t just fit in—they stand out.

Why St. Laurence

St. Laurence is a transformative Catholic environment that develops courageous leaders, centered on God and driven by academics and athletics. As the first STEM-accredited high school in Illinois, we provide a dynamic curriculum built around project-based learning in a team-driven environment, rooted in the Essential Elements of an Edmund Rice Christian Brother Education. By teaching the whole student and empowering them to serve causes they believe in, St. Laurence prepares young men and women for extraordinary success in college and beyond.
