What's Happening at OLT?

One Lawndale

Nominated by our College Readiness Director, Yuliana Reygoza, Class of 2025 was given the opportunity to take part in a summer program called Lawndale, presented by Open Center for the Arts

OPEN is located just around the corner from our school in Little Village. The project aims to create unity in North and South Lawndale through the arts.

Yuli and other area teens worked with Chicago artist, Haman Cross III on a mural that focused on bringing different groups of people together for the common good of our neighborhoods.

Yuli was thrilled to be able to take part in this summer internship. She gained communication skills, learned more about the art movement in Little Village and furthered her artistic talents -- all to benefit the neighborhood she calls home.

Welcome Back Students 23-24

Tepeyac Freshwomen started their first day of high school on Thursday, August 17th. Students had the chance to get to know their teachers, find their classrooms and get to their lockers. Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors got reacquainted on Friday and the whole school came together for a full day of classes this past Monday.

The volleyball season has begun, Student Council is underway and our Student Activities Coordinators are hard at work planning a spirit filled year. Faculty and staff alike are thrilled to have the hallways buzzing with laughter once again.

Welcome back, Tepeyac girls!

Congratulations, Class of 2023

We are proud to announce that 100% of the Class of 2023 graduated and has set plans to attend a wide variety of colleges, universities and training programs.

The Our Lady of Tepeyac community celebrated the Class of 2023 at our Baccalaureate Ceremony and Graduation Mass and Ceremony held this past weekend.

Best of luck to our amazing young women! We know you will do great things.

Class of 2023 Spotlight: Valeria Acosta

Tepeyac is proud to share that Senior, Valeria Acosta (photographed on the far left), recently received a full scholarship to the University of Illinois. She was accepted into the Gies College of Business and is set to begin this August.

To say that Valeria worked hard to earn this spot is an understatement. She is a four year athlete on both of the volleyball and basketball teams, a Student Ambassador, a Student Council representative, a member of the National Honors Society and a Kairos Retreat Leader.

Throughout the college application process, Valeria was always focused on U of I. She received multiple acceptances but was thrilled when her #1 choice offered her this opportunity. She is choosing to major in business because her parents are restaurant owners in the Little Village neighborhood and she hopes to be a part of their operation in the future.

Valeria is an excellent example of a Tepeyac young woman. Also a graduate of Tepeyac Grade School, she is kind and funny as well as driven, always willing to do what is needed for a friend or for her school. Valeria is committed to making the world a better place. We can't wait to watch her as she brings all that she learned at Tepeyac to her new campus experience at U of I!

College Dorm gifts from a Wonderful group of Women!

The Senior Class had a fun surprise at their Baccalaureate Luncheon. All thanks to Guild 9, a wonderful group of women from our sharing parish, Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Glenview.

The seniors were thrilled, needless to say, and had fun sorting through all of the wonderful items that filled their baskets. It was the perfect end to a morning of celebration.

This group of AMAZING women put baskets with many gifts together that will be needed and great for college. We are incredibly grateful for their support.
