St. Josephine Bakhita School
At the February 10, 2021, regular board meeting, our Board of Trustees approved the name St. Josephine Bakhita for our new Evanston school.
Saint Josephine Margaret Bakhita was born in 1868 in the village of Olgossa, Darfur (Sudan). She was a true witness of God’s love and served with humility and simplicity. Refusing to become a prisoner of her past, she is an incredible example of forgiveness and resilience for our community.

Administration Qualities, Attributes & Characteristics
Prior to the selection of a new school's principal, we consult with the community to consider and articulate the qualities, attributes and characteristics that the community would like to see in the new school's administrative team.
Catholic parents with children eligible to attend the new Evanston school as per the attendance area decision shared on April 22, 2020, are invited to participate. Due to COVID-19 safety protocols and health restrictions, the consultation is online. See here to register. Registration closes at midnight on Wednesday, November 11, 2020.
