Admission Policy for Transfer Students

St. Irene is a popular choice for transfer students at all ages, providing a supportive environment for students making this transition.

If you are interested in transferring to St. Irene School, please contact Principal Maggie Detwiler at 630-393-9303 x16 to make an appointment.  Please bring a copy of your child’s recent grades, test scores and any applicable records.  Your child can experience a day at St. Irene School by arranging a Shadow Day — a full- or half-day in our school with their new classmates.

Class Size / Maximum Enrollment

Small class sizes ensure individual attention.  At St. Irene School, we limit our class sizes to 25 students (with exceptions) in grades PS-8.

Payment Options

We offer families a variety of choices in tuition payment plans.  Choose the plan you prefer, sign the completed tuition agreement form and return it to the school.

We partner with FACTS Management Company to help us manage our tuition payment program and financial aid assessment. The FACTS system allows you to choose your payment plan and specify on which date you would like your automatic payments made, from a bank account or from a variety of credit cards. Please click here to enroll in FACTS.

Each family will be expected to earn the assessed Manna Fee or pay the equivalent amount in cash.
