Education

Education at all levels is a cornerstone in the Shorewood community. Two PK-8th grade school districts serve portions of Shorewood. Both Troy School District 30-C and Minooka Community Consolidated School District 201 are among the fastest-growing districts in the state and provide outstanding elementary education to Shorewood’s young minds. Private education is provided through Trinity Christian School (PK-8) and Holy Family School (PK-8), as well as numerous institutions in the surrounding area. Highly reputable secondary public education is provided through Joliet Township High School District 204 and Minooka Community High School District 111.

Graduating seniors and adults returning to school are afforded several exceptional options for higher learning and workforce training in the immediate area. Shorewood is fortunate to have the resources of Romeoville-based Lewis University right in town. Lewis University’s Shorewood campus offers several adult accelerated programs, traditional undergraduate and graduate degree programs, as well as two certificates of advanced study in education. Further higher learning options in the general area include Joliet Junior College and the University of St. Francis, both positioned in Joliet.

Enhancing the educational, as well as social and recreational, offerings of the community is the Shorewood-Troy Public Library. In circulation are innumerous books, cassette books, CD books, magazines, newspapers, DVDs, videocassettes and music CDs. In addition to this collection of resources, the library offers meeting space, Internet and WiFi access, copy and fax machines, a microfilm reader/printer and an array of youth and adult programs and events. From storytimes and writers groups to book discussions, computer classes and cultural offerings, the Shorewood-Troy Public Library is a hub of community activity.
