Our instructional programs begin with three-year-old preschool and continue through grade eight. Our Early Childhood Program is offered to children aged three through six.
The ACT Aspire standardized testing is administered in grades three through eight in the early spring of each year. Individual results are provided to parents and our school scores are published here on our webpage.
Our faculty, staff, and volunteers are committed to the protection of children and youth, and fully comply with the requirements of the Office for Protection of Children and Youth run by the Archdiocese of Chicago.
St. Albert the Great is the proud recipient of the CME Grant, which funds a Personalized Learning program at our school. Our teachers in grades K-8 are trained in the Personalized Learning approach to education, which is Learner Focused, Learner Led, and Learner Demonstrated.
