ST. ANGELA STUDENTS & STAFF WELCOME BIG SHOULDERS & CATHOLIC SCHOOLS REPS
Recently, representatives of the Chicago Catholic Schools administration and Big Shoulders Fund visited St. Angela School, 1332 North Massasoit Avenue, for their annual inspection tour of the elementary school that is being called the miracle of the West Side because it avoided closure when its sponsoring parish closed and has increased enrollment from just over 100 students to nearly 500. St. Angela is renowned for outstanding student performance leading to being admitted to the most prestigious Catholic, private, and public high schools in Chicagoland. They also have a stellar record of winning essay and art competitions and being offered opportunities to participate in highly selective college-sponsored special academic programs. Big Shoulders Fund was created by Cardinal Joseph Bernardin as a mechanism for assuring necessary financial assistance to students from low-income families to attend Catholic schools. Most St. Angela students receive scholarship assistance from the Big Shoulders Fund. St. Angela School offers classes for boys and girls in Pre-kindergarten through 8th grade. For information on curriculum, admission requirements, extracurricular activities, and financial aid, call 773/626-2655. Geralyn Lawler is Principal of St. Angela School.
