Catholic School Week - January 25-31, 2015

We are a community of Faith, Knowledge, and Service! 

The theme encompasses several concepts that are at the heart of a Catholic education.
First, schools are communities—small communities in their own right, but also
members of the larger communities of parish, town, state and nation. They are, in the
first place, communities of faith, where children are openly taught about God, where
God is worshiped regularly, and where students and faculty put their faith into practice
on a daily basis. Secondly, Catholic schools exist to pass on knowledge -- not just the
practical knowledge of reading, writing, arithmetic and so on, but also knowledge of
God and truth, which is our spiritual heritage as Catholics. Finally, Catholic schools are
communities of service
, places where helping one another and aiding the needy are the
modus operandi, the normal way of living life.

2015-2016 School Registration

It is time for us to begin planning for our 2015-2016 enrollment at St. Mary Immaculate Parish School.  As you are aware, we offer a quality faith-centered education for children from Pre-School (age 3 by September 1, 2015) to Grade Eight.  The requirement is that a family must be a registered parishioner at St. Mary Immaculate in order to register for our school or to be placed on the waiting list.  In addition, we ask that you bring your child’s birth certificate and baptismal certificate along with a $125 registration fee per family with you when you register in the Main office (Entrance A, south of the Commons Doors).  Open registration begins during the Catholic Schools Week Open House on January 25, 2014 at 10:00am and will continue each school day from 9am until 2pm until openings are filled.  

Families wishing to tour the school during the school day may call the school for an appointment.  Please direct all inquiries to Kris at 815-436-3953. Thank you for your interest in St. Mary Immaculate Parish School.


Welcome to St. Mary Immaculate Parish School

Saint Mary Immaculate Parish School’s goal is to prepare our students to academically achieve to their fullest and to get them to heaven by the teamwork of parents, parish and school as “One Family in Faith Making Christ Known” sharing our parish and school mission. We strive to create a Catholic learning environment of academic excellence in which we develop in our children a deep Catholic faith emphasizing the message of Jesus and encouraging a life-long quest for knowledge, justice, and mercy.

The administration, faculty, and staff, welcome the students and families of St. Mary Immaculate School. The message greeting those who enter our school says it all:  “Be it known to all who enter here CHRIST is the reason for this school.  He is the unseen but ever present teacher in its classes. He is the model of the faculty and the inspiration of the students”.

In the Peace of Christ,

John T. Garvey, Principal


St. Mary Immaculate
