St. Joseph School

Wilmette, IL

We served a supporting role to determine whether and how to reopen this K-8 private school.

Determine feasibility for reopening the school, either in its traditional model or as a hybrid of a parish/secular private school.

The parish that had supported the school had undergone significant changes demographically, and the school had closed decades earlier due to the loss of volunteer staff, loss of enrollment, and loss of financial support from the parish.

Joseph School reopened and was recently named a National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the U.S. Department of Education.
