It is the mission of Maternity B.V.M. School to develop the whole child through an academically rigorous environment and a safe, loving community rooted in the Catholic faith.


Educating the mind, body, and soul.

Dear Families, 


I am very pleased to welcome you to our Maternity B.V.M. School family. We are delighted that you are interested in our school and have included much information on this website.


Our instructional program serves Pre-Kindergarten (age 3) through 8th grade. Our holistic approach to teaching focuses not only on our students’ intellectual growth, but also their emotional, physical, creative, moral, and spiritual development. 


  • Maternity B.V.M. has served Chicago’s Humboldt Park neighborhood for over 100 years and we have a rich history of educating Chicago’s business and civic leaders.  

  • Our rigorous academic curriculum helps our graduates earn acceptance into Chicago’s top high schools like Holy Trinity, Guerin Prep, and St. Josephinum.  

  • Our early childhood program provides a strong foundation for young children through a unique combination of direct academic instruction and imaginative play. 

  • We see parents as partners in helping our students learn. In a survey conducted by the University of Chicago, 98% of our parent respondents reported they would recommend Maternity BVM School to a friend who is looking for a school for their child.  


We would love to talk with you more about our school. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions.


For our children,

Mrs. Christine Molina-Rebecca

Principal, Maternity B.V.M. School
