Our school participates in Big Shoulders Fund Plus, which is an initiative in 30 schools across Chicago. Big Shoulders made this commitment in recognition of  the exceptional value our school provides to families and the important role we play in the community. We are proud of our partnership with Big Shoulders Fund in strengthening our school’s long-term sustainability and vitality.

HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS AND TEACHERS

“ My classmates have taught me the importance of friendship. We have all encountered similar struggles but are continuing our journeys together, no matter how tough things get.”

Ariana, '20

“ What I like best is the connections I make with my teachers. Tepeyac feels like our home. There’s a whole support system here.”

Carmen, '20

“ You come to Tepeyac as a young girl with a dream and you leave as a young woman with a vision.” 

Salma, '16

“ We meet these girls where they are at and take them farther than they ever imagined toward success, despite what may have come before Tepeyac, and despite what people in other parts of their lives may be telling them. “

Mrs. Thompson, President
