Our schools are located in Mundelein and Wauconda on the St. Mary of the Annunciation and Transfiguration Parish campuses serving children Preschool Age 3 through 8th grade. Our schools work in direct partnership with three local parishes; St. Mary of the Annunciation and Santa Maria del Popolo in Mundelein and Transfiguration in Wauconda.  Our schools are open enroll and welcome all who share in our Christian principles, values and beliefs.

The Consortium benefits from the establishment of an advisory board which was commissioned to be representative of each participating parish and school.  The board is committed to providing leadership, counsel and support to the school leadership and ensuring the sustainability and vitality of Catholic education in Lake County.

Our anchor parishes, St. Mary of the Annunciation, Santa Maria del Popolo and Transfiguration provide financial assistance and in-kind funding to the Consortium.
