In August 2017, the State of Illinois passed a bill that creates a new way to fund scholarships for children who choose to attend private schools through the “Invest in Kids Act.” Through this program, students have access to scholarships that could cover up to 100 percent of tuition and eligible fees. Please visit the Archdiocese of Chicago Office of Catholic Schools website for current information regarding how the educational funding bill may benefit current and prospective Saint Gilbert Catholic School families: Tax Credit Scholarship Information 

Individuals and corporations will receive a 75 percent Illinois state tax credit for donations made to a Scholarship Granting Organization (SGO), created to distribute the scholarships. The Archdiocese of Chicago is working with the SGOs: Empower Illinois and Big Shoulders Fund. Join us in providing a quality Catholic education to more students. Visit Tax Credit Scholarship Information  for more information, or contact the Tax Credit Scholarship Office at the archdiocese at or (312) 534-2617.

The theme for 2020/21 will be We Are Called. This theme evokes the unique calling that God has for each of us. We know that all of us have a vocation, a specific calling to holiness. God’s callings can be found throughout Sacred Scripture, from the accounts of the prophets to the sending forth of the apostles at Pentecost. The Blessed Mother and other Saints provide us with wonderful examples of how we should discern and accept God’s call in our lives.
