Mission Statement

Josephinum Academy is a multicultural, Catholic, college-preparatory school empowering young women of Chicago to become confident, faith-filled leaders. As a Sacred Heart School, we fulfill our mission through the five goals and criteria of the Sacred Heart Network. These goals seek to develop within each student: a personal and active faith in God; a deep respect for intellectual values; a social awareness which impels to action; the building of community as a Christian value; personal growth in an atmosphere of wise freedom.

Description

Founded in 1890 by the Sisters of Christian Charity to educate the daughters of recent German immigrants, Josephinum Academy has a long and demonstrated tradition of responding to the educational needs of the local community.
As the Wicker Park neighborhood has transformed over the last century, the school has remained relevant and current with the times. Today, under the leadership of the Religious of the Sacred Heart, Josephinum continues this tradition by committing itself to extending the opportunity for a quality, Catholic, college-preparatory experience to an increasing number of ambitious young women, regardless of their ethnicity, religion, or socioeconomic status.
