From St. Paul of the Cross School

Since 1925, St. Paul of the Cross School (SPC) has provided the very best Catholic education, serving the needs of families in Park Ridge and surrounding towns and neighborhoods on Chicago’s northwest side. A preschool to 8th-grade school, SPC is a two-time recipient of the National Blue Ribbon Schools Award (2011, 2020).

The close-knit community is what sets us apart from all other schools and is extraordinary due to our superior faculty, dedicated staff, and involved parents working as a team to help each student realize their full potential.

Our rigorous curriculum is inclusive, collaborative, and differentiated. SPC engages students and families in a comprehensive approach to the social, emotional, physical, and spiritual growth through a variety of co-curricular service, learning, and athletic programs. Our graduates are faith-filled leaders equipped with 21st-century skills and prepared to succeed as committed Christians and loyal citizens in an evolving global society.
