our history

Salem has carried a tradition of faith based, quality education for more than 44 years.  Historically located in Logan Square, Salem offers top quality private education to students across the city.   Salem provides an alternative to both selective enrollment and high priced Montessori schools.  Good education does not require you to migrate to the suburbs. Conveniently located, Salem offers a challenging curriculum a grade level ahead of placement for a diverse, urban population.   Offering grades PreK - 8, children receive instruction with the added benefit of our small class size.  Our average student/teacher ratio is approximately 15:1.  Beyond the basics, students receive PE, Health, Technology, and a host of other enrichment classes.
