Principal's Welcome


Welcome to St. Gall School! 


Founded in 1910, St. Gall School‘s purpose is to empower the youth of Chicago’s southwest side to be academically, emotionally and spiritually prepared for the challenges of high school and beyond.  St. Gall first welcomed children of German, then Irish, and after that Polish/Bohemian descent, and now primarily families of Latino descent who work hard to provide an outstanding educational opportunity for their children.


Today, more than 100 years later, St. Gall School provides a safe, nurturing atmosphere for every child and we continue our tradition of academic achievement and excellence. As an educational community that spans Preschool through Grade 8, we have the privilege to truly watch our students grow up, and we know each child in a way that few schools can boast. We are experts in the many milestones of the early childhood experience and the challenges of primary and lower school skill development. A St. Gall education is unique and rooted in relationships that empower students to be more than they ever imagined.


Our goal has always been to see that our graduates succeed in all aspects of their lives. Most importantly, it is our expectation that all our students will grow academically, socially, and emotionally to become well-rounded, model citizens who contribute great things to the world.

As an extension into our community, I invite you to join us in living out the motto of our namesake, St. Gall, on a daily basis: to Do Right, Dream Big, and Aim High.

Please contact us today at 773-737-3454 for a personal tour of our school.  We know you'll agree that St. Gall School is the perfect fit for your child!
