Welcome to our school and community!
Добродошли! Добро пожаловать!

St. Sava Academy is a preschool through eighth grade parochial school of Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral, located on the northwest side of Chicago. The Academy provides comprehensive, daily, dual-language instruction in either Serbian or Russian within an Orthodox Christian environment. The focus on our Orthodox Faith, family, moral, ethnic and cultural values culminates into an exceptional educational experience for future generations.

Enrollment offerings begin with preschool (age 3) and continue through the eighth grade. At each grade-level, class size is kept to a very favorable student/teacher ratio.  The highly trained, experienced and devoted faculty is dedicated to supporting the highest educational standards.

Please visit our Academy and meet our caring teachers, dedicated parents and inspirational students.

Our Mission & Vision

The mission of St. Sava Academy is to provide students with a dual-language education in an Orthodox-Christian learning environment that will guide students through life as respectful, resourceful and active participants in our society.

The vision for St. Sava Academy is to serve as a recognized center for Serbian Orthodox education in the Chicagoland area and the wider community. In collaboration with students, parents, and the entire community we aim to establish ourselves as a hub of academic excellence in both Serbian and English languages, rooted in the Orthodox Christian Faith and the rich Serbian history and culture. We continue to foster our cooperative relationships with the Russian Orthodox community and other local, regional, national and international Orthodox communities.

Our History

St. Sava Academy was originally founded in 2001, as an Orthodox-Christian partnership between Holy Resurrection Serbian Orthodox Cathedral and Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church, both of Chicago,  This partnership gave St. Sava Academy a strong foundation. and we are grateful to Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church and the Socrates School community for this.

History was made on August 28, 2006, when St. Sava Academy opened its doors as an independent Serbian Orthodox parochial school. Students, parents, faculty and clergy full of love, joy and excitement, crowded the school foyer as the academic year began. 

St. Sava Academy proudly bears the distinction of being the first dual-language Serbian Orthodox parochial school for students in preschool through eighth grade in the United States and Canada.
