An innovative curriculum and outstanding faculty to prepare your child for success in life

When your child is educated with high academic standards through a loving support system, it provides the motivation and encouragement your child needs to succeed.

Our Students Grow Into Scholars - Our accredited program exceeds Illinois State Standards in accordance with standardized Test scores that consistently rise year to year. The longer a student stays at St. Ethelreda, the better the student’s scores are over time.

Our Students Graduate - 100% of our students graduate and most go on to selective high schools. Our grads attend St. Rita, Mother McAuley, Leo, De La Salle, Mt. Carmel, St. Ignatius, Queen of Peace, and other top high schools

Focus on STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, & Math – Your child’s curriculum includes access to our computer lab and Study Island, an online educational aid. Since 2007, our Lego Robotics program has won awards in competition for three consecutive years, including a winning robot design. Our curriculum also includes project based learning as well as problem based learning in order to develop our students as critical thinkers and problem solvers.

Benedictine University Partners – Our partnership with Benedictine University provides a wealth of academic opportunities and resources exclusive to St. Ethelreda School. One unique program includes an in-class college educational experience to inspire junior high students to pursue a higher education. A four year scholarship is available for St. Ethelreda graduates who attend a Catholic high school, maintain a 3.0 GPA and enter Benedictine University as an Education major.
