Prospective Families

Welcome, we're glad you're here!

Bridgeport Catholic Academy was established in 1985 by several parishes in the Bridgeport community of Chicago.  Through a consolidation of educational resources, the participating parishes were able to offer a significantly improved primary education program. All Saints/St Anthony, St Bridget, St David, St George, Immaculate Conception, St John Nepomecene, St. Mary of Perpetual Help, and Nativity of our Lord parishes all figure prominently in Bridgeport Catholic Academy’s ancestry.

A school uniform is an outward sign of a student’s duty to live in unity with his or her classmates. A uniform also removes the distractions and competitiveness that tends to accompany free dress, distinguishes Bridgeport Catholic Academy students, is an opportunity for them to convey pride in their school, and encourages them to focus more on personality and talents than on externals. Additionally, students who understand and who follow the uniform code demonstrate that they are ready to live up to the academic and behavioral standards at Bridgeport Catholic Academy.

Students are required to be in uniform nearly every day of the school year. The few exceptions are called dress down days. Although every faculty and staff member is charged with enforcing the uniform code, it is primarily and naturally the responsibility of the parents to make sure that their students are properly attired to attend school.

It is the responsibility of parents and guardians to ensure that their children are in proper uniform attire each school day. Dress-down or special dress days will be announced ahead of time.
