Welcome Prospective Families
Thank you for your interest in Christ the King Jesuit College Prep!
CTK is a faith-based, Catholic high school located on the West Side of Chicago, in the Austin community. As a Catholic, Jesuit institution we are focused on maintaining an affordable and safe environment for our students. We take pride in assisting our prospective families in finding the right fit school for their students. As the first Catholic high school built on the West Side in over 85 years, CTK features state-of-the art facilities such as: science labs, an Innovation Center with a MakerSpace and sound studio, an art and music facility, a gymnasium with a full production stage, a weight training room, and a dining area with an on-site commercial kitchen.
CTK students benefit from small class sizes and an inclusive environment. The curriculum offered at CTK begins with a freshman year that focuses on the core fundamentals of Math and English. Additionally, students take Science, History, Fine Arts and Religion courses all 4 years. Students benefit from academic support through advisory periods and a dedicated academic center. CTK also offers personal college counseling and preparation for its students, a crucial part of what makes our 100% college acceptance rate possible.
The curriculum at CTK also includes a unique work-study component. Our students spend five days a month preparing for an entry-level position in various corporate offices throughout Chicago, with the goal of direct placement by the completion of their Freshman year. In addition to gaining important workplace skills, students learn how to engage in a professional corporate environment. Our Corporate Work-Study Program allows us to maintain low tuition costs for each of our students.
For eleven years since inception, 100% of our graduates have been accepted to colleges and universities across the country. We credit this success to our accomplished faculty and highly motivated students. The work study program has helped our students realize that their dreams will become a reality.
Prospective students are invited to participate in the “Glimpse of a Gladiator" visiting program. By participating, applicants experience firsthand the spirited community we have by interacting with CTK students and faculty for half a day.
If you are a highly motivated student, eager to find yourself working in the corporate world, and ready to take on the challenges of a demanding college prep curriculum, Christ the King Jesuit College Prep is the school for you.
We look forward to assisting you with the application process.
