St. Constance School is open to all students regardless of race, ethnic origin, or religious affiliation. We offer a rigorous learning program for students with average to above average abilities. Because the school does not receive federal or state funding to assist with special education expenses, we are able to provide only limited direct services for students with diagnosed disabilities.
Admissions are processed on a rolling basis; registration for the following school year is initiated during Catholic Schools Week, which takes place the last week of January. Families interested in information regarding St. Constance School are encouraged to contact the school at (773) 283-2311. You may also request an information packet by completing the inquiry form, available online, and forwarding it to the school.
