Every school on the Illinois High School Glory Days site had a beginning and ending point. The following list is to show all the Chicago schools on our site and what became of them after they closed.
With the help of folks such as Julie Satzik at the Archdiocese of Chicago's Cardinal Bernadin Archives Center, archivist Richard Seidel of the Chicago Public Schools system, educator George Fornero, historian Robert Pruter, and the 1953 dissertation about the history of secondary schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago by Sr. Mary Innocenta Montay, this list been compiled to give a sense of history of what high schools served the city of Chicago since the first school was open in 1844. Each of these schools was located inside the current city limits of Chicago, even though schools such as Englewood, Lake, and South Chicago began in suburbs that were annexed into the city by the year 1910.
