Making the right high school decision

Deciding on a high school is an incredibly important decision for an eighth grader. Finding the right balance of great academics, a variety of co-curriculars, and a school that will feel like home for the next four years is no easy task! Here in Chicago, many eighth graders took the big exam in January at their preferred Catholic high school. But for many others, the high school decision still looms large. Luckily, there are still spots left at Holy Trinity High School for the fall, and we are offering a make-up entrance exam on Friday, May 27, at 8 a.m.! Click here to register for the Exam.

Here at Holy Trinity, we are small by design. Our 12:1 student to teacher ration and small class sizes mean each student receives the individualized attention they deserve. From the moment you walk through our doors on Division Street, you are a member of the HT family. Click here to learn more about our personalized approach to academics.

For parents, one of the biggest concerns is being able to afford a private high school education. With the most expansive financial assistance program in the city, and a wide variety of academic scholarships, Holy Trinity works with each family to make an HT education affordable for them. Click here to learn more about how we can make an excellent education affordable for you and your family.

The first step is taking the entrance exam. Click here to register for Friday's exam, or contact our admissions team to learn more.

Recognizing our outstanding students

Last week marked the end of the first quarter here at HT. This morning after our all-school mass, we recognized those students who excelled academically this quarter and made the honor roll. In addition to this valuable tradition, we added a new element to our recognition assembly. This quarter, we also recognized those students who exemplify our five Holy Cross values. I'd like to share those students with you all.

These students were nominated by Holy Trinity faculty and staff.

Discipline: Holy Trinity students are responsible, respectful, and tireless in working to achieve their goals and serve others.

Tony Rodriguez '18

Tony has a long commute to Holy Trinity and also works three nights a week to pay his tuition to have a better life. He never developed good study habits in grammar school and during the first couple of weeks at Holy Trinity was overwhelmed with the coursework. Since being referred to the RLC to learn study skills, Tony has diligently come every day after school and also checks in in the mornings when he gets to school. He takes direction, asks good questions, and does not leave until he finishes his work.

Integrity: Holy Trinity students are truthful, faithful and committed to living the values of Holy Cross and the Catholic Church.
