The Leo brotherhood
Leo Men are part of the Leo family. Leo Men are always there for Leo students, Leo staff and fellow Leo Men. A Leo student becomes a member of the Leo family from the day he walks through our door. Leo students join a legion of Leo Men once they graduate. As a Leo Man, you can count on enduring friendships, support, and love of your Leo brothers for the rest of your life.
Facta Non Verba
Deeds not words. The Leo motto will carry you through what you do in the classroom, on the field, in your community and in life. A Leo Man acts, he cares, he supports, he works hard, he makes a difference. From the day you enter Leo you will understand to live Facta Non Verba.
Strong Academic Culture
Leo High School offers College Prep and Honors Curriculum. Our educational leaders have developed a rigorous and well-rounded curriculum designed to prepare our students for the “next step”—college, the military or the work force—as they convert 21st century challenges into opportunities.
Our staff is committed to working with students and challenging them to give their best and be their best. Our small class sizes ensure each student gets the support and attention he needs to succeed.
You’ll never feel like a number here at Leo.
Championship Athletic Tradition
Athletics is a rich and rewarding part of Leo High School’s tradition and history. We can count over 61 championships since 1926 and can proudly boast of titles in track, basketball and football. Our teams are respected around the nation and our student-athletes are heavily recruited, as much for their character, discipline and academic achievements as their athletic talent.
Our school participates in Big Shoulders Fund Plus, which is an initiative in 30 schools across Chicago. Big Shoulders made this commitment in recognition of the exceptional value our school provides to families and the important role we play in the community. We will be partnering closely with Big Shoulders Fund to strengthen our school’s long-term sustainability and vitality.
