Learn why Josephinum Academy of the Sacred Heart is the best high school for you and your family!

While our building is temporarily closed due to the state-wide COVID-19 school closure, Jo students are actively continuing their education via our digital learning platform and we are still enrolling students for the 2020-2021 school year. Admissions representatives are available and happy to speak with you and your family about the Jo or to communicate by email. Please reach out to our Director of Marketing and Enrollment, Daeshawna Skinner, at admissions@josephinum.org to set up a time to talk.

Attend an open house

Check out our new Virtual Open House video! Meet members of Josephinum's faculty and staff, explore our campus, and learn more about our one-of-a-kind academic program and scholarship opportunities. Open Houses are held throughout the school year.

Unfortunately, due to the Coronavirus-related building closure, the Open House previously scheduled for April 25 will be rescheduled to a later date to be determined.



If you can't make it to one of our Open Houses, or prefer to come in during the week, please join us for a private tour of the Jo once our campus re-opens! To schedule your private tour, contact our Admissions Office at admissions@josephinum.org or (773) 276-1261 ext. 291. Please keep in mind that our school building is currently closed through the end of this school year, June 9, 2020.

Plan a shadow day

Come and experience a day in the life of a Josephinum student! Eighth and seventh grade girls will shadow a student and get to know what it means to be a Girl Without Limits. Meet our incredible faculty, explore our campus, and become inspired by our unique approach to 21st-century education.

Due to the order to close all Illinois school buildings through the end of the school year, we are unfortunately unable to host shadows for the remainder of the 2019-2020 school year. The Shadow Day program will resume in the fall for current seventh graders.

However we are still actively enrolling students for the 2020-21 school year and want to help you get to know the Jo! If you are considering joining us in the fall as a Freshman but have not had the chance to shadow, please reach out to our Admissions Office at admissions@josephinum.org or (773) 276-1261 ext. 291. We will be happy to take you through a "remote" Shadow Day - connect you with our Principal, faculty and even a student, to learn more about what it's like to be a Jo girl.

For future reference, shadows should arrive by 8:30 a.m. and check in at the front office. All shadows will be dismissed at 3:45 p.m. Verbal or written permission must be provided by a parent or guardian before you attend a Shadow Day. If your desired date is full, or you are otherwise unable to attend during one of the listed dates, please contact the Admissions Office to schedule your Shadow Day visit and we will find a time that works for you.


Would you like to bring a group of girls from your elementary school or other youth organization to spend the day at the Jo? Contact our Admissions Office at admissions@josephinum.org or (773) 276-1261 ext. 291 for more information or to schedule a group Shadow Day visit. Note that all Shadow Day are currently postponed due to the closure of our building through the end of the 2019-2020 school year. Shadow Day visits will resume when we return in the fall.
