We are a school for the innovative. For the curious. For the challenge-seeking. For those who will greet their future with eyes wide open and full of wonder. Baker’s Preschool-8th grade students thrive in our innovative, experiential learning environment.

Located on the border of Evanston, just minutes from Chicago, Baker is a private school nationally recognized for educational excellence and serves students in preschool through 8th grade.  Our philosophy is rooted in a simple, but powerful idea:  an education should do more than help a child excel academically; it should prepare them to thrive throughout life, no matter how different the future may look. While academic excellence is at our core, our hands-on, experiential curriculum is designed to inspire curiosity, creativity, and collaboration.
