During the spring of 2020, The Academy established a Merit Scholarship to be awarded to an incoming 6th grader who is the child of a first responder/essential worker, in thanks for their heroic efforts during COVID-19. 
The goal of all our Tuition Assistance is to lessen the financial barrier of receiving a rigorous academic education.  The recipient of the scholarship is a young man whose parent is a health care worker. His family currently resides in Glenview.
In our 2nd year as The Academy at St. Joan of Arc, we are located on the border of Evanston and Skokie. We are an Independent Catholic School for all faiths, with a PS - 8th-grade enrollment of 185 students.  Our mission is to balance academic rigor with the values of honesty, compassion, respect, and responsibility, a commitment to inclusion and community service.
Our goal is to enable every student to explore, create, and define their best self.  With the generous help of our donors - like Skokie Vally Rotary Club, we are able to provide Tuition Assitance to 28% of our students.  
We are starting our 6th week of in-person instruction. And while these unprecedented times present challenges, our wonderful faculty created a remarkable Re-Opening Plan, exceeding the safety guidelines and providing a rigorous yet joyful educational experience.
