Education

Access to first-class education at all levels is a significant draw for families and employers interested in relocating to Mokena. There are numerous early childhood education and daycare centers that cater to working parents and provide a great learning base for children. The majority of students entering primary school attend Mokena School District 159, while Frankfort School District 157-C, New Lenox School District 122 and Summit Hill School District 161 serve small portions of Mokena. All three primary school districts feed into Lincoln-Way Community High School District 210. There are also alternatives to the K-8 public school options in the Mokena area. Locally, students enroll at St. Mary’s Catholic School and the Noonan Elementary Academy.

Graduating high school seniors and adults looking to enhance their skill sets are afforded a number of higher learning opportunities in the southwest suburbs. Within 20 miles of Mokena, residents have access to several colleges, universities and technical schools, including the Rasmussen College’s Mokena-Tinley Park campus, ITT Technical Institute, Moraine Valley Community College, Governors State University, Lewis University, the University of St. Francis, Prairie State College and South Suburban College.

Supporting the entire learning community in Mokena is the Mokena Community Public Library. The library maintains a collection of more than 85,000 books and 300 periodicals, along with subscriptions to 18 area newspapers and a number of literacy and history/genealogy products. Internet access, online research databases and a year-round catalog of library programming are also part of the library offerings. More information is available online at www.mokena.lib.il.us.
