Welcome to St. Helen School

Welcome to St. Helen School
"We believe that it is a child's right to be educated in a nurturing and safe environment."

St. Helen Catholic School strives to educate the whole child.  In doing so, a spiritual, academic, and social foundation is created. This formation, rooted in Gospel values, enables the graduate to develop as a responsible Christian citizen.

We believe that it is a child's right to be educated in a nurturing and safe environment.

Daily activities encourage the sense of positive self-esteem as well as the development of self-discipline.

We unite for racial justice and celebrate cultural diversity.

We promote active service to the school, parish, and community.

Our History




Opened in the fall of 1914, St. Helen is currently in the midst of celebrating it's centennial history. Located in Chicago's Historic Ukrainian Village, St. Helen School is a cornerstone of a thriving and successful community.  



St. Helen Catholic School and Parish have a long and storied history.  Founded in the early 20th Century, the school has stood through 17 presidencies, 2 World Wars, and countless other historical milestones. The school has adapted and thrived through 100 years of history and looks forward to many, many more.



Here at St. Helen Catholic School we hope to continue the tradition of excellence established over a century ago.  Improving student access to technology and cutting edge teaching tools has been, and will remain, a priority for our school.  A formula of tried and true teaching methods combined with a committment to the future of learning tools will keep St. Helen School a place where students can navigate  the long road to academic excellence.
