Ancona celebrates 50 years as one of Chicago's most diverse independent schools. Located in the historic Hyde Park neighborhood, Ancona educates children ages 3 through the eighth grade. Built on the genius of children, Ancona is a model of what school should be. Dedicated teachers understand the complex needs of young learners and engage students with multiple avenues for learning. Ancona students thrive in our multi-age, open classroom environments where they develop a love for learning while nurturing 21st century skills. Our rich curriculum draws from the best practices in progressive education. Students acquire lifelong skills such as, critical thinking, adaptability, innovation, collaboration, social responsibility, effective communication and imagination. Ancona's philosophy meets the needs of the whole child.
