Preparing for the Future: Promoting Higher Education in Chicago's Catholic High Schools, 1910-1935
Ann Marie Ryan, University of Illinois at Chicago
By the 1930s most Chicago Catholic high schools were accredited by the University of Illinois. Accreditation meant recognition as a school that met the professional standards of the day and access to higher education for a school's graduates. While Catholic schools were concerned with establishing credibility through accreditation and promotion higher education, they were not necessarily interested in access to public institutions such as the University of Illinois. This paper examines the complex aims of Chicago's Catholic high schools during their early development and their focus on preparing students for Catholic higher education.
Scholl Center seminars present scholars' works-in-progress. All papers are pre-circulated. If you plan to attend, you may receive a paper by contacting Ginger Shulick by email or phone.
