Chicago Heights, IL-(ENEWSPF)- If you’re considering enrolling your children at a Catholic high school next year, now is the time to act.

“Many 8th Graders in the Chicago area and their parents don’t realize that now is the time to look into a Catholic high school if they want to attend one next year,” said Sean Mele, co-director of admissions at Marian Catholic in Chicago Heights. “Often parents and students reach out about enrollment in the spring and summer thinking they can easily enroll for the fall, but by then, Catholic high schools have already held their open houses and entrance exams, and any tuition assistance has been distributed.”
