Josephinum Academy says

Josephinum Academy is a Catholic college preparatory high school that empowers young women of Chicago to become confident, faith-filled leaders. In small ways every day, in history class and on the softball field, students progressively learn that they have the power to effect change in their lives. A member of the Network of Sacred Heart Schools, Josephinum Academy is an academically rigorous, Catholic, single-sex, college-preparatory high school for promising young women of Chicago. We are a multicultural, values-based community that strives to empower young women to become leaders by nurturing their talents and instilling within them a social awareness that motivates them to make a difference. Josephinum's academic program is designed to fully prepare students for college with an emphasis on critical thinking, analysis, and writing skills. We have a talented and committed faculty, of whom over half hold advanced degrees. Students benefit from a single-sex environment that is safe for intellectual exploration and offers greater opportunities for leadership. Josephinum offers advanced classes as well as AP English, AP Spanish, AP Calculus, and AP Biology. Our curriculum is relevant and incorporates issues of gender, race, and social justice. We strive to make our quality program accessible with a low tuition and an outstanding financial aid and scholarship program.




Private schools, including parochial and boarding, are funded through tuition and fees. The cost varies from school to school, but most families pay tuition to attend them. Many private schools offer financial aid or discounts, so it's worthwhile to ask about these options.
