Chicago Grammar School

Admissions Coffee

Chicago Grammar School is where the traditional meets the progressive.  Here at CGS we’re looking to provide children with the ability to develop 1) a base of core knowledge, 2) critical thinking and 3) communication skills.

Preschool families:  Chicago Grammar School welcomes 3-and 4-year old children and their parents to our community!   We offer Reggio-Emilia inspired learning geared toward each child’s development.  The children’s own interests and curiosity are the means that lead to the creation of rich and thoughtful experiences that enable the development of motor skills, vocabulary, language, math, music, social skills and emotional control, a foundation necessary for academic and athletic success.

Kindergarten, Elementary and Middle School families:  Our program brings intellectual heft designed to challenge and intrigue the students. Our materials and methods create experiences that are wide-ranging, Socratic and creative, while highlighting the integrative nature of knowledge.  We are proud that our student culture is pretty unique … the children value good work and accomplishment  – all while having a great time!
