Our school publishes bulletins in all three of our partner parishes on a regular basis. Click below to view our partnering parish websites. Our school is governed  through the guidance and direction of the Archdiocese of Chicago.

Catholic School System Unveils a Unified Brand, Signaling Transformation

Celebrating over 120 combined years of Catholic Education,  St. Mary of the Annunciation Elementary of Mundelein, Transfiguration Catholic Elementary and Frassati Catholic Academy Middle School of Wauconda, known most recently as the Catholic Consortium of Lake County, governed by the Archdioceses of Chicago, kicks off a new era of unification and continued Catholic education. As of the 2017-2018 school year, the unification of mission-driven Catholic education in the Mundelein and Wauconda communities will be named Frassati Catholic Academy – elementary & middle school, serving preschool – 8th grade at two campus locations:  Mundelein Campus and Wauconda Campus. Please bare with us during this time of virtual transition.  We have made many changes to our website and intend to continue to put forth much effort to make it more user friendly in the coming months alongside our brand unification.  Thank you & God Bless!

Our school is working to become a Digital Citizenship School. Digital Citizenship is a concept which helps teachers, technology leaders and parents to understand what students/children/technology users should know to use technology appropriately. Digital Citizenship is more than just a teaching tool; it is a way to prepare students/technology users for a society full of technology. Digital citizenship is the norms of appropriate, responsible technology use.  Too often we are seeing students as well as adults misusing and abusing technology but not sure what to do. The issue is more than what the users do not know but what is considered appropriate technology usage.  Check out the below links for more information on how we plan to reach our Digital Citizenship goals.
