F*I*S*T* (Family*Integrity*Service*Tenacity*). These are the core values that drive Sullivan High School. We are committed to the education of the whole child; mind, body and spirit. We provide a rigorous academic curriculum, partner with a CVS sponsored school based clinic, house a heath-club quality fitness room and offer a variety of sports and creative activities to expand and enrich the mind. School offerings include dual credit programs through the City Colleges of Chicago, an Allied Health/Medical Honors Career Academy, a Business & Finance Academy and an Army JROTC program.

As a smaller school, Sullivan is able to recognize individual students and provide instruction tailored to the diverse student body while celebrating their cultural/ethnic differences and uniting them as on cohesive group. Our mission is to educate across the entire spectrum of life; academics, the arts, character development and life skills.  We teach students to enjoy life and provide them with the tools to do so.

The Newcomer Academy at Sullivan High School serves students in Grades 9-12 who have recently arrived to the United States. Providing rigorous instruction and intentional English language development is at the core of the Newcomer Academy experience. Our teachers and faculty are focused and trained in personalized and social-emotional learning and providing a catered educational plan for our students. We are committed to helping students navigate this new country so they ultimately make a positive transition academically and culturally, while also maintaining their home languages and cultures.
