Elmhurst - Immaculate Conception Grade School

132 Arthur Street

Our mission as a Catholic school is to create an environment that proclaims the Gospel message, builds and lives community, encourages worship and prayer, and provides opportunities for service to God and others. We strive on a daily basis to promote academic excellence in all areas of the curriculum.

Immaculate Conception Grade School is a Catholic elementary school whose purpose is to collaborate with parents to provide an environment in which students have the opportunity and the incentive to develop into persons with strong Christian values. It strives to provide guidance and example in the fourfold purpose of Catholic education: namely, Doctrine, Community, Worship, and Service.

All students are encouraged to develop their full potential: intellectually through a strong academic curriculum; physically through a well-rounded physical education and sports program; and spiritually and morally through its religious program which offers guidance in the formation of Christlike attitudes and virtues. Throughout the programs, emphasis is placed on the students’ acceptance of responsibility for themselves as good and moral persons.

Being part of ICGS has been and continues to be wonderful for both our child and us as parents. The level of education that students receive, the opportunities to excel both in the classroom and outside through clubs, band, choir, athletics and of course a strong faith foundation makes for the best all around experience. With dedicated teachers and staff it gives us comfort to know our child is in the best school environment each and every day.

There are not enough positive words to describe this special, wonderful school. ICGS cultivates the very best qualities in each child. Students are challenged academically, but I think more importantly, they are taught to be good people who live their lives in faith.

We have three children at IC Grade School and could not be happier with our overall experience. Each of our children have different educational needs and the school has met, if not exceeded our expectations for all of them. It is also very obvious to us that they are gaining a vital foundation to make them good, religious people with strong values to help them grow up in a world that is not always so great. We thank you IC for making our children the best that they can be.

We have three children who are currently enrolled at ICGS and could not be happier with the overall experience. Not only are they receiving a great education from a team of highly dedicated and passionate teachers who challenge them every day academically, but they are also growing socially and in their faith. Looking at the success rates and achievements ICGS grads realize in high school and beyond, we are confident ICGS is the perfect place for our three “little ones.”
