Other Information & Reminders:

Scholarship Opportunities

Applications are currently available to Resurrection students for the scholarships listed below. Applications can be found in the Main Office or in the links below. 

Danielle Marie Pisterzi Scholarship
The Danielle Marie Pisterzi Scholarship was established in Danielle's memory in 2013 after an automobile accident. The scholarship fund was created at Resurrection College Prep and will be awarded to two Resurrection students who demonstrate the qualities that Danielle so beautifully exhibited. Danielle was completing a degree in Accounting from Northern Illinois University and is remembered by classmates as a hard-working, determined student and by family and friends for her infectious smile that led her to make friends with anyone she met. The two $1000 scholarships recognize juniors or seniors who have been a 3 or 4 year member of the Resurrection Cross Country team (one of Danielle's passions).   Application

Parents Club Scholarship
The Parents Club Scholarship is a $1000 award that was established by the Resurrection Parents Club as a means of financial support for parents who are experiencing financial hardship due to special circumstances.  Priority will be given to students who have not received additional tuition assistance or scholarships.  Application 

Internet & Social Media Safety 

Detective Charles Hollendoner from the Chicago Police Department will speak with our freshman class on Thursday, September 24, 2015 during seminar on the subject of Internet and Social Media Safety. This is the third time he has spoken to our students about safe Internet practices and the importance of avoiding dangerous activity, such as sexting.  
Detective Hollendoner is a twenty one year veteran of the Chicago Police Department and has been assigned as a Detective in the Special Investigations Unit fore more than a dozen year. He has investigated hundreds of cases involving sexual crimes and/or abuse of children in Chicago and Cook County. He has conducted numerous Internet Safety Presentations to Elementary and High Schools students as well as community leaders and parents throughout Chicago.


The annual Resurrection Walk-A-Thon is just nine days away and will be held on Tuesday, September 29 as part of Spirit Week. Students should be gathering pledges from local businesses, neighbors, friends and family members in support of Resurrection College Prep High School.  Student pledge forms and sponsorship money is due by Friday, September 25.

The Walk-A-Thon is one of the many fundraising events to help bridge the gap between the cost of tuition and the actual cost of a Resurrection education (which is $3,390 per student for the 2015-16 school year).   Thank you for all you do to support Resurrection and our students.
