You’ve probably heard that Pilgrim offers “Academic Excellence with a Heart” – and part of our “heart” is helping students develop the social and emotional management skills that will help them succeed both in the classroom and later in life.

Ask most parents in Chicago, and they’ll probably tell you that choosing where their children attend school can be overwhelming, time-consuming, and downright anxiety-provoking!
For families who are fortunate to have a variety of options, the first major decision to tackle is whether to select a public or private school education. Both offer specific benefits, and both can provide the “right fit” – depending on a child’s individual strengths and challenges.
We want to help families just starting the decision-making process – or considering a switch – so we’re providing answers to some frequently asked questions about private schools!
Summer break is here! For many, it’s a sigh of relief after what feels like a longer than normal school year. For children, it’s a chance to have fun, explore, and play!

Stress, anxiety, and unknowns were high for all. Amidst the challenges, early childhood students at Pilgrim spent the past school year engaged in play in the classroom.
