Attend the 5th annual Chicago Jesuit Academy’s Junior Board’s Give-A-Little-Gala at the Chicago Illuminating Company on November 5th from 7-11 p.m. The event is housed in a two-story former power plant/warehouse that dates back to the 1900s. It is conveniently located near McCormick Place. The renovated, modern architectural gem highlights an urban loft aesthetic.

The Gala is their primary fundraising vehicle and proceeds go directly to scholarships for CJA students.  The Chicago Jesuit Academy is a full-scholarship, college preparatory, Jesuit, Roman Catholic middle school for young men from modest economic backgrounds.

“The Academy is distinguished by small classes, an extended academic day and a longer school year to prepare students for success in college prep high schools, universities and positions of community leadership.  Chicago Jesuit Academy helps students develop as young men who are open to growth, religious, intellectually competent, loving, and committed to doing justice in the service of others, in accord with the Jesuit mission and tradition. The school’s success in its mission is made possible by the disciplined sacrifices of our students, parents, faculty, staff, volunteers and benefactors.”

 The school is located at 5058 W. Jackson Blvd in Chicago. For more information visit
