Providence St. Mel School
The annual Celebration! dinner raises crucial funds to benefit Providence St. Mel, an outstanding independent preschool through 12th grade college preparatory school on the West Side.
Providence St. Mel School, on Chicago’s West Side, has an impressive track record of providing children with a quality education. Providence St. Mel, an independent preschool –12th grade college preparatory school, has a record of achievement that is unrivaled. Since opening its doors in 1978, 100% of Providence St. Mel’s graduates have been accepted to four-year colleges and universities. The class of 2015 accomplished something truly remarkable: For the first time in school history all of the seniors were accepted to “tier one” and Ivy League institutions! The ACT average for the Class of 2017 was 24 (the national average and the state average are 20). The performance by our students is indeed outstanding. In the past five years, more than $25 million in college scholarships has been awarded to its graduates. Providence St. Mel School is proud to be able to offer such a high quality education, and is grateful for the many donors who help to make that possible.
