Separated by Ogden Avenue, the twin communities of LaGrange (South of Ogden) and LaGrange Park, date back over a century. Residents enjoy access to the many attractions and employment opportunities of urban Chicago, yet a traditional small-town suburban feel prevails throughout the well-maintained neighborhoods of charming older homes and tree-lined streets.  Population approximately 16,000
Distance to Downtown Chicago – 16 Miles
Average Drive Times

  • 22 Minutes to Chicago Loop
  • 26 Minutes to O’Hare Airport

LaGrange is home to three elementary schools and three junior high schools. LaGrange Park has three elementary and one junior high. High school students from both communities attend Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, where scholastic excellence is enhanced by 13 academic departments offering a total of 300 courses. LaGrange Park residents falling within Proviso Township attend Riverside Brookfield High School. Nearby private and parochial schools offer an alternative to public education.

La Grange has public elementary schools, including two of the four schools in LaGrange Elementary School District 102: Cossitt School and Ogden Avenue School.  Park Junior High is also part of District 102, but is located in La Grange Park, Illinois. Two other elementary schools in La Grange are part of La Grange Elementary School District 105: Seventh Avenue School and Spring Avenue School, both located on the streets that share their names. Gurrie Middle School also serves District 105. More elementary schools in La Grange include Forest Road Elementary, and Congress Park.

St. Cletus and St. Francis Xavier serve as the two Roman Catholic schools in La Grange. St. John’s Lutheran is the one Lutheran elementary school within the village limits.

Lyons Township High School in La Grange now has two campuses. The North Campus, located in La Grange, is used by Juniors and Seniors and was the original high school. Freshmen and Sophomores go to South Campus, located in neighboring Western Springs. The Campus was split due to lack of available land for expansion around the original building.

LaGrange boasts a large integrated shopping district of outdoor cafes, boutiques and popular retail shops. Major shopping outlets include the Oakbrook Center and Yorktown Shopping Mall.

The Park District offers programs for all ages. Schedules for seasonal activities are printed quarterly and are available through local schools, libraries and the village hall. A weekly outdoor concert series, “Music Under the Stars,” is held in Memorial Park each summer. An enormous YMCA facility, twelve nearby golf courses and Brookfield Zoo, just two miles to the east, are among other local recreational attractions.
