Ongoing personal tours of the school will be given so you can meet the faculty and staff along with our students and families. See all the wonderful work our students do throughout the year and see all the technology we offer our students.


The official St. Celestine School opened on September 24, 1936 with four Sisters. Sister Jean Patrice was the first Superior and with her came Sister Grace Edward, Sister Miriam and Sister Jean Dolores. Portable partitions six feet high were placed in the church building to divide it into four classrooms. Folding chairs with detachable arms were used as desks. Ninety-one children registered for the first four grades. Eighty years later we have 470+ students and 50+ faculty and staff serving our parish faith community, St. Celestine Parish, including the areas of Elmwood Park, Chicago and beyond.

We provide a quality foundation that fosters academic, physical and spiritual development to children Pre-K through 8th grade. Academics also include: Art, Computer (iPads for every student Pre-K – 3rd grade, Chromebooks for every student 4-8th grade, a full computer lab with weekly classes for each grade, Promethean boards in every classroom Pre-K through 8th Grade), Music, Spanish, Reading Resource, Speech Therapy, H.S. Academic Contests, Jr. High Science Fair, and National Geography Bee. We offer a variety of sports programs, instructional and competitive including Basketball, Soccer, Volleyball, Cross Country, Softball, and Floor Hockey and many other student clubs including Art, Reading, Choir, Drama, Science and Scouts. We offer Full Day Preschool, Kindergarten, 3 & 4 yr. old Half Day Preschool, Hot Lunch and a very reasonably priced Before & After School Care. School tours are given any time. Stop by the office to pick up an information packet and ask questions. We look forward to meeting your family.

St. Celestine School is a wonderful place to believe, achieve and succeed!  For more information please contact Mrs. Jeanine Rocchi, School Principal
