Everest Academy of Lemont Increases Enrollment by Over 50%


Chicago, IL - Everest Academy of Lemont recently announced enrollment numbers for this school year with over 50% growth. Since its foundation in 1995, Everest has seen continuous growth. Enrollment has jumped from 100 students to over 145 registered for the 2012-2013 academic year.

Everest Academy educates students from preschool through 8th grade, beginning as young as three years old. Last year, the preschool students made up approximately one-third of the school’s student population. This year, however, many of the upper grades have welcomed transfer students, as local parents search for strong academics with their children approaching high school. As part of the regular curriculum, the school offers Spanish, art, poetry, drama, music, band and violin, and offers on-site extracurricular activities that include chess, martial arts, dance, Polish, art, choir and private music lessons.

Molly Maher, who has been Dean of Students at Everest since 2009, attributes the school’s growth to the vibrant school community of happy children and satisfied parents spreading the word about the personal attention their children receive at Everest.

 “The students are our first priority, and it’s a joy to see how much they love their school,” she says.

“We are excited to see the school grow” says Coleen Mast, Everest Advancement Director. “Everest Academy has so much to offer that we want as many children and families as possible to receive these benefits.”

Everest graduates have a strong record of acceptance into private high schools of their choice. Formation Director Fr. Jon Budke L.C. attributes graduates’ success in high school to the rigorous academic preparation and solid spiritual formation they receive at Everest.
