St. Mary of the Angels School is a Catholic PK-8th Grade School of the Archdiocese of Chicago, located in the heart of Bucktown - steps from the 606 Trail, the Clybourn Metra Station & the Kennedy Expressway. Our warm and welcoming school community produces life-long friendships for the students and parents alike.
We offer academic rigor, to ensure that all students are on the right path for success in high school and beyond. We are proud of many things at SMA, but our biggest source of pride is our National School of Character Award. This award is testament to the fact that character development and the social/ emotional well being of each child is at the core of what our teachers value.
We are Kind, We are Respectful, We are Responsible, We make Smart Choices....We are SMA!
We are still accepting applications for the 2021-22 academic year. We have limited space available in many grades, including space in our PK3 classrooms. We look forward to meeting you soon.

St. Mary of the Angels School Reviews
If you are looking for your child to be challenged academically through a rigorous curriculum and taught the skills required to make good choices, act responsibly and value kindness & acceptance, SMA is the school for your family.”
One of the things we noticed early was how respectful the children were to teachers, parents and to their peers....especially how the older kids are to the younger ones!
It has been so easy to meet and become friends woth other families and everyone gets involved in one way or another through events throughout the year.
We and our kids absolute love going to St Marys - We have been so pleased at the entire experience after such a long grueling process of exploring what options there are for your children. It is truly one of the best kept secret in chicago.
