Resurrection College Prep maintains academic rigor through the physical presence of students in the classroom. Instructional time is the foundation of the educational program. Failure to attend school means lost opportunities to learn.
Resurrection College Prep expects students to be in attendance for all classes each school day. All aspects of the school day, such as Masses, prayer services, retreats, and all-school assemblies are important and are considered part of the educational program. A cooperative effort by the student, parent/guardian, and school personnel ensures that a student maintains regular attendance.
The State of Illinois considers a student excessively absent when absences exceed 5% of the school year. Resurrection College Prep records period by period attendance and considers a student excessively absent when she exceeds 5 absences in any class per semester.
Read details about excused and unexcused absences, make-up work, attendance at Masses, retreats, and special events, multiple absences, the impact on extra-curricular activities, and return to school information in the current Student Handbook.
To Report an Absence
The student’s parent is required to call the Attendance Office before 9:15 a.m. on the day of the student’s absence at 773.775-6616 x 118.
A parent may leave a voice message to verify her daughter’s absence during non-school hours.
- If a parent/guardian is unable to report the student’s absence, the individuals authorized by the parent/guardian on the Emergency Form may verify the absence.
- If the school is not notified, the Attendance Office will call the parent/guardian.
- If a student’s illness will require numerous Resurrection College Prep Student/Parent Handbook days of absence, her counselor can be contacted to arrange for assignment pick-up and other supportive measures.
When a student returns to school, she will report to the Attendance Office before 8:15 a.m. to verify her return to school and submit any required medical documentation.
Seniors and juniors with a study the last block of the school day may leave after their last class provided that they have submitted an Early Dismissal authorization form signed by the parent/guardian and student. Early dismissal privileges are granted when the student maintains a C- or higher in all classes. Early dismissal privileges can be impacted by special events and schedule changes. Please see the current student handbook for further information.

Development Office Activities
Resurrection tuition only covers about 76% of our educational costs and the gap between tuition and the actual cost is about $3,900 per student. Every student benefits from this subsidy and this is funded through donations, fundraisers, and the Annual Fund. Fundraisers help us fill that gap and allow us to expand school programs, assist with upgrades, and fund scholarships.
The school's Development Office also welcomes parent volunteers to help with fundraising efforts and special events. A few of the annual fundraising events are listed below.
- Grandparents' Day Dinner
- Holiday Arts & Craft Fairs
- RES Fest
- Night at the Races
If you would like to get involved, please contact Julia Dombrowski at 773.775.6616, Ext 112 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
