  • Our Philosophy: Academic Excellence with a Heart

    Academic Excellence

    Pilgrim uses a “whole child” approach, focusing on academic, spiritual, emotional, social and physical development.
    Pilgrim prides itself on a play-based preschool and kindergarten, high test scores and a 95% acceptance rate of graduates into competitive high school programs.

    With a heart…

    Faith development is an integral part of the growth process and enables students to successfully achieve a positive place for themselves in society.

    For more information give us a call at 773-477-4824.

    The school is fully accredited by the Evangelical Lutheran Education Association and has earned recognition by the Illinois State Board of Education.    

    Pilgrim has been a great fit. In addition to the level of academic rigor, we know we can keep him here through junior high; thus ensuring that we don’t need to work through the selective enrollment craziness.

    This is not a school in a glitzy new facility, but what it is, is good, values-driven education, with dedicated teachers, and a community that is accepting of all. In my mind that is a find.
