Chicago Private School Providing Academic Excellence with a Heart
Academic Excellence… Pilgrim uses a “whole child” approach to provide a quality education. We focus on academic, spiritual, emotional, social, and physical development for each child. In addition, we pride ourselves on a play-based preschool and kindergarten. Our students achieve high test scores resulting in a 95% acceptance rate of graduates into competitive high school programs.
With a heart…
Faith development is an integral part of the growth process for students at Pilgrim. By teaching our students through the lens of faith, we help students successfully achieve a positive place for themselves in society.
Our school was founded by Pilgrim Lutheran Church in 1921. The goal was to provide an excellent education in a nurturing Christian community. Pilgrim’s first principal, Alfred Rumsfeld, served from 1921 to 1955. Next, David Maring both taught and led our school for 46 years from 1966 to 2012. Lastly, our current principal, Chris Comella, has been with Pilgrim since 2012.
