Our Lady of Guadalupe School (OLGS) has been teaching the next generation of leaders in South Chicago since 1947. Serving Kindergarten–8th grade students by providing high-quality education, warm breakfasts, safe after-school spaces, team sports opportunities, and individualized peer tutoring, OLGS offers its students fantastic opportunities.
In order to make education opportunities possible, the school offers tuition assistance to many families in an area where the average annual income for families is $18,000. The need for financial assistance is great, and your support during the 2021-22 school year is crucial to providing a safe and healthy environment for the students.
