Jan Karski Polish School is located in Palos Heights, IL, adjacent to St. Alexander Catholic Church. Classes are held on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. The Polish school program includes education in Polish language from kindergarten to high school, religious education in the Polish language, along with First Communion and Confirmation classes, classrooms adapted to the age of students, a great staff of experienced Polonian teachers, and preparation for the certification exam Seal of Biliteracy. The patron of the school, Jan Karski, was a Polish World War II resistance-movement soldier, and later a professor at Georgetown University in Washington D.C where he lectured international relations and the theory of communism for forty years. Jan Karski was also the author of several books. The publication about the activity of the Polish underground state (“Story of a Secret State”), published in 1944 in the US soon became a bestseller and has been translated into many languages. At the start of the 2018-2019 school year, Jan Karski Polish School became partially subsidized by the Polish Roman Catholic Union of America with intentions of full subsidy in the coming years.
