Holy Trinity High School was founded in 1910 to educate the children of Polish immigrants who settled in the near-north part of Chicago and who were some of the poorest in the city at the time. In following the spirituality of the Brothers of Holy Cross and the educational framework of their founder, Blessed Fr. Basil Moreau, CSC, the school has continued to serve those who are most in need, now predominantly populated by children from economic disadvantage and outright poverty. We serve a broad, multi-racial, multi-ethnic group of teens who are not often given opportunities by other schools.
Utilizing a challenging and rigorous curriculum, the faculty and staff of Holy Trinity commit their talents to service of the underserved children in the Chicago area. We empower our students by showing them the value of community service and active faith-based ministry. We compassionately inspire our students to follow a code of conduct based on respect, self-discipline and Catholic principles. We teach our students to make choices, empower them to choose a position for their lives and inspire them to achieve their dreams. We love to hear a student say, "I will succeed."
Since 1910 and under the leadership of the Brothers of Holy Cross, Holy Trinity High School has provided quality, caring education that educates the heart as well as the mind. We have engaged in a unique neighborhood-based strategy designed to motivate disadvantaged teens to stay in school as they learn the skills necessary to succeed. For the 2008-2009 school year, Holy Trinity enrolled approximately 400 students, with a vast majority from families for whom private school tuition is a great financial burden, requiring more than $1.5 million in financial aid. The current student population includes 41% Hispanic, 53% African-American, 4% Bi-Racial/Other, and 2% Caucasian. – less–ZoomInfo
