Fenwick High School is a selective private college preparatory school located in Oak Park, a town in Cook County, Illinois that is bordered by Chicago on the north, east, and south, and River Forest and Forest Park on the West. Fenwick was founded in 1929 as part of the Province of St. Albert the Great (Dominican Friars). It is the only school directly operated and staffed by the Catholic Order of Dominican friars in the United States. It is named in honor of Cincinnati Bishop Edward D. Fenwick.
Fenwick enrolls approximately 1,200 students and is ranked as one of the leading preparatory schools within the greater metropolitan Chicago area. Admittance is highly selective and based on testing administered at the school. Some of Fenwick's alumni include: a state governor, a NASA astronaut, Rhodes scholars, Pulitzer Prize winners, an Olympic gold medalist, a Heisman Trophy winner, professional athletes, as well as CEOs of many national and international corporations.
The school colors are black and white and the mascot is the Friar. Fenwick's president is Father Richard Peddicord, OP. In 2009, the school's principal, Dr. James Quaid, Ed.D., left his 21-year tenure with Fenwick to become Associate Superintendent of Schools for the Archdiocese of Chicago.
