Principal's Welcome

Dear Prospective Saint Joan of Arc Families,

Thank you for your interest in Saint Joan of Arc School. Established in 1926 as a Benedictine Parish School, Saint Joan of Arc School is a fully accredited school which has a long, rich history of academic excellence.

As a Catholic school, we offer our students the opportunity to learn about math, science, reading and language arts, social studies, technology, music, art and athletics while learning about and living out the teachings of Jesus Christ. In addition to our core teaching, we also provide opportunities for our students to participate in various service projects, extracurricular activities, and volunteer within the wider parish community.

Our faculty is dedicated to providing a well thought out curriculum that nurtures each child. With the combination of academics, religion, extracurricular activities, and outstanding faculty, our students score well above average on standardized tests. Our students graduate from Saint Joan of Arc School and go on to be very successful in the high schools of their choice; many choosing to continue with Catholic Education in the area high schools.

Saint Joan of Arc School represents affordable excellence in the Catholic tradition. Tuition assistance is available through the school, the Diocese of Joliet and the Illinois Invest in Kids program. The office staff and I are available to help with any questions that you may have. I invite you to experience our nurturing and welcoming community where you will feel the warmth, tradition and spirit of Saint Joan of Arc School.

Michelle Picchione, Principal
