Children of Peace Catholic School
is a caring community of children, parents, and professional staff brought together by their faith in God and bringing peace to the world. Our educational program meets the academic and social needs of a diverse student population which includes educating the deaf and hard-of-hearing in a nurturing and safe environment.
Our present location, in the heart of the Illinois Medical District, is the result of a consolidation of three Catholic Schools: Holy Trinity, St. Callistus, and Holy Family in 1994. The children named the newly formed school by stating they wanted to bring a feeling of strong and loving peace to their community.
